Innovating Competency-based Education
Higher education has typically relied on time, credit, and course based model that presupposes the learner has no prior knowledge or competence, and provides a learning program with formative and summative assessment of learning in a series of serial, structured levels or terms.
The completion of levels or terms are marked by summative assessments to ensure the block of learning associated with that level or term has occurred satisfactorily. At the end of the last level or term of learning, the learner often has a final summative assessment of knowledge for credentialing purposes, or provides a satisfactory record of learning to a professional or credentialing organization to allow them access to a certifying examination.
Shift iQ supports these typical assessment and regulatory processes, and associated management of assessments and records, to better manage the certification, credentialing and client management processes for apprentices, trades qualifiers (challengers), and other learners. Anything that your organization currently does with its existing systems can be accomplished with Shift iQ.
