In Unit 3 the key area emphasized is Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) which is learner centered and links with most learning theories and instructional methodologies.

 

 

 

In CBC, competencies drive the outcomes. Competency based instruction measures what is learned as opposed to what teachers think they have taught. Moreover, learning is measured according to how well the learner performs in relation to competencies.

 

There is a shift from the current teacher-centered approach to learner-centered approach in teaching & learning.

 

 

Another critical area covered is on assessment, Competency Based Assessment (CBA). This is the process of determining the capability of a learner to apply a set of knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to successfully perform tasks. It connects evaluation with instructional programs by informing teachers of a learner’s progress and learning challenges.

 

 

 

CBA is a learner centered approach to evaluating and documenting student progress through; Classroom observations; Checklists; Portfolios; Journals; Written tests, Oral or Aural Questions, Learner’s Profile and Anecdotal Records. It is a form of direct measurement where teachers are assessing precisely what they teach.
