What is Performance-Based Education?

Performance-Based Education is a system whereby students demonstrate mastery of competencies by working individually at their own pace. Students work together in one setting based on a common subject area. Grades reflect successful work only. Students do not fail – they remediate until they are successful. This gives students a better foundation on which to build for future courses.
