Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) recently wrote about the value of submitting a competency report, like the one earned through Personalized Learning, with a job application.
"Personalized Learning at NAU offers three degree programs which are all self-paced and competency-based. Students map their own path through the modules and learning outcomes that are defined by NAU faculty. Along the way, students work with mentor faculty who offer feedback, suggest resources, and provide support.
NAU’s competency report, as detailed in a recent NGLC brief, Next Gen Tools: Competency Report, identifies a student’s content mastery and skill proficiency according to the degree program’s clearly defined competencies. It offers potential employers more specific information about what an applicant knows and can do than can be conveyed in a traditional transcript’s list of courses and grades. And it more directly links graduates’ academic work to their preparation for the workplace."
