From LMS to CBE
Competency-Based Education Realized
Turn Your LMS into a Competency-Based Education (CBE) System
Competency-Based Education (CBE) and Competency-Based Learning (CBL) represent innovative learning approaches that prioritize students’ competencies over the conventional course-based methods of education. In CBE, students must demonstrate proficiency in a predefined set of competencies at different levels, while traditional course-based models rely on completing a specific curriculum of courses to fulfill degree requirements. The advantages of CBE have been extensively studied and will be further discussed in other publications.
RCampus has been at the forefront of the education industry, pioneering rubric-based and authentic assessments. It holds the distinction of being the first Learning Management System (LMS) to introduce integrated rubrics for assessments. Building on our commitment to advancing education technologies, RCampus is proud to unveil our integrated approach for transforming any learning management system into a competency-based education system.

In the area of Competency-Based Education (CBE), RCampus takes a comprehensive approach, tracking your students’ academic journey throughout their years of study. At any given moment, RCampus has the capability to present a comprehensive list of all their competencies and their respective progress levels for multiple programs and degrees in which they are currently enrolled or eligible for.
How it benefits your institution and students:
RCampus’ Competency-Based Education (CBE) offers institutions a transformative perspective on their students. Instead of the traditional transcript view that simply displays the courses taken and grades earned, RCampus presents a holistic understanding of students’ competencies, outcomes, and proficiencies achieved at different levels. This comprehensive view highlights their strengths, identifies areas for improvement, and outlines opportunities for further growth in various mastery levels.
With RCampus’ CBE, institutions can review students’ competencies at multiple levels, including institutional, program-level, and course-level assessments. This enables them to modify their curriculum strategically, fostering increased student success not only in their academic pursuits but also in their future careers. By focusing on competencies, RCampus empowers institutions to create a dynamic and personalized learning environment, fostering students’ continuous development and readiness for their professional journey ahead.
RCampus provides real-time dashboards that offer students and their advisors a quick and comprehensive overview of students’ competency levels and their developmental journey over time. Through these intuitive dashboards, students gain valuable insights into their progress, identifying areas where they need to focus and understanding what is required to meet their competency requirements. Furthermore, students can explore additional degrees and certificates they qualify for, significantly expanding their potential and opportunities.
For advisors, these dashboards streamline their role, allowing them to access all pertinent information with just a click of a button. This enhanced efficiency enables advisors to conduct quality reviews and advisement sessions, empowering them to offer personalized guidance and support tailored to each student’s unique strengths, aspirations, and academic path. With RCampus’ real-time analytics and user-friendly interface, both students and advisors can work collaboratively to optimize the learning experience, ensuring students are well-prepared for academic and professional success.
