COMPETENCY BASED-SKILL MATRIX FOR WGU

COMPETENCY BASED-SKILL MATRIX FOR WGU

Western Governors University (WGU) is a widely respected college well-known for their competency-based educational model.

During this project, NifteLearning worked as a consultant, instructional designer, and developer as the University rolled out new course offerings in edX. As these courses were built from the ground up, NifteLearning supported WGU to develop a skills-based matrix describing levels of proficiency and how competence could be demonstration at each level.

This role involved:

  • Working with key stakeholders to identify different proficiency levels
  • Describing how competency could be demonstrated at the course and program level
  • Mapping courses and course artefacts to the matrix
  • Making edits, incorporating stakeholder feedback
  • Selecting which competencies to evaluate per course
