Proficiency- and competency-based learning has generated a great deal of interest among states, districts, and high schools seeking to meet the needs of individual students more effectively as well as to boost graduation rates. Because research on the implementation and outcomes of this reform is still limited, the Northeast College and Career Readiness Research Alliance has focused its long-term research agenda on P/CBL. On May 5, 2014, the alliance hosted a Bridge Webinar to explore emerging research on P/CBL and its implications for practice in states, districts, and schools. Jennifer Steele at RAND Corporation and Erika Stump at the University of Southern Maine’s Center for Education Policy, Applied Research, and Evaluation presented findings from their newly published studies.
