Abstract

Competence means ability or capability and performance is the proof of competence. The objective of higher education is to impart competency to the learners and the presumption is that those who undergo higher education have acquired competency. As opposed to this, is the credit based system where the grades directly speak what a student has earned through education? But the question is how to measure competency among the graduates who pass out. Various indicators are available in Competency Based Education System (CBES). One is employability, i.e., the capability to take-up and performs a job with little of support. However, this is something that is decided by the employer and difficult to set a benchmark. Our competency measurement model suggests that apart from knowledge, specific skills, and experience on a job, other supporting skills like Communication, proficiency in writing, generation of new ideas, preserving a vision in life, desire for learning, and improvement in life, attitude towards life, respect for fellow-beings, and such other qualities could be hugely a measure of competency acquired from education. It may be difficult to quantify, yet it is essential to be considered through a properly developed measuring scale to be given as competency level. In this discussion, an attempt has been made to identify such factors which contributes to competency based education and measuring their performance outcome using a newly suggested model based on different ranking scales.

Keywords: CBES, Competency based education, Outcome based education, Performance level, Competency Measurement model, Competency Measurement Scales.
