“Robert J. Marzano, Alexander S. Aschoff, and Ashley Avila have done a great job developing a framework for how to move toward competency-based secondary learning systems in their book, Teaching in a Competency-Based Secondary School. They offer constructs for developing clear learning goals, proficiency scales, and assessments that will save you decades of work, helping you move your teachers and students toward a better learning future.”

Bob Sornson, founder, Early Learning Foundation; author, Brainless Sameness: The Demise of One-Size-Fits-All Instruction and the Rise of Competency Based Learning

“The authors of this book make a compelling case for the use of competency-based systems in secondary schools. I challenge any educator to read this book and not feel morally compelled to shift their practices in order to better meet the needs of all learners. It is a step-by-step how-to guide that recognizes the dual need for classroom teachers to provide students with both instruction of new knowledge and skills and support so they can self-manage their own learning in a move-when-ready, competency-based classroom setting.”

Brian M. Stack, coauthor, Unpacking the Competency-Based Classroom: Equitable, Individualized Learning in a PLC at Work®

“Competency-based learning is gaining significant momentum in schools across the United States and beyond. Marzano, Aschoff, and Avila provide much-needed guidance and practical resources for those in secondary schools looking to understand the research base behind competency-based learning and ultimately put this theory into practice. Teaching in a Competency-Based Secondary School is a must for those seeking to engage, support, and ultimately empower students as agents of their own learning.”
