Competency Based Education
Competency-Based Education in New Hampshire is not a new idea. Anyone who has ever taken a vocational course, plays a musical instrument or has been involved in sports understands that success in learning anything is based upon skill development and practice.
Epping has been involved in Competency-Based Education (CBE) since early 2014. The district is considered an "early adopter" of CBE and has been involved in the Performance Assessment Competency Education (PACE) program since its' inception in 2014.
Since the fall of 2015, the educators in Epping have been unpacking all of the infrastructure of the traditional educational system for examination. For example, we looked at the curriculum and aligned the curriculum K-12, vertically by content area. We have looked at the assessments to ensure that the assessments are valid and reliable; that they test what we think they should test. We wrote a handbook that outlines the well-researched principles and practices of Competency-Based Education and we have created one grading system K-12.
I encourage you to read all of the materials in this section of the Website. Should you have additional questions or concerns, please contact your building level principal.
