About the Toolkit

For colleges and universities launching or scaling full Competency-Based Education (CBE) programs, The CBE and PLA Playbook provides members with step-by-step guidance to determine whether launching a CBE program is the right fit for their institutions, tools to mitigate the costs and risks of launch, and resources to support continuous improvement in student screening and support.

Given that most universities decide not to invest in full-scale CBE programs because of its significant costs and risks, this playbook also contains resources for members looking to incorporate personalized learning without launching full-fledged CBE programs.
