Evidence of Learning: The Case for an Integrated Competency Management System

by: Adam Newman | Papers |Feb 10th, 2015

A shift in expectations is occurring among core postsecondary education stakeholders – students, employers, and institutional administrators and faculty – regarding the “evidence of learning” required in today’s world and its effective validation and presentation. The ability of individuals to present their evidence of learning should be a hallmark of our society’s increasing orientation toward lifelong learning and transparency of capabilities. In practice, executing this vision requires a far-ranging systemic effort within individual institutions and across stakeholder communities.

A Tyton Partners project created in partnership with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Evidence of Learning: The Case for an Integrated Competency Management System for Students, Higher Education, and Employers identifies critical integration gaps that exist within a proposed Evidence of Learning framework, hindering the development of a well-functioning system that meets the needs of students, institutions, and employers.

This publication assists institutional decision-makers, policy makers, technology providers and other higher education stakeholders who are looking to catalyze greater transparency and transferability of student credentials between school and career, formal and informal learning environments.
