Competency-Based Education: Power in the Numbers

Jan 31, 2018 at 2:00 PM CST

Carlos Rivers, Operations Research Analyst, Texas A&M University Commerce
Shonda Gibson, Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness; SACSCOC Accreditation Liaison, Texas A&M University-Commerce

This presentation will demonstrate a Data Dashboard created for the state of Texas first public, regionally accredited (SACSCOC) competency-based baccalaureate degree. The Institute for Competency-Based Education, housed at A&M-Commerce, has tracked program data and built key performance indicators for the program since its inception, so that it may serve as the beginning of a common conceptual framework. Session participants will engage in some investigation, looking for patterns and trends that grant glimpses of insight and assist in building value around the data. Coupling the data with narrative creates the opportunity for extended value by aiding in creation of powerful stories with the potential to influence stakeholder buy-in and drive innovative change.
