Credits for competency

Southern New Hampshire University’s College for America has no courses, credits or teachers. Helped by an online academic coach, students complete assignments that show their mastery of 120 “competencies,” such as distinguishing fact from opinion or conveying information through charts and graphs. Students can move at their own pace to earn an accredited associate degree, paying $1,250 every six months.

    Separating fact from opinion is good. If you can provide info in charts and graphs, you can get info from charts and graphs.
    Whether that’s good for the employment world is one thing. Makes a better voter, and a more discerning consumer of “news”.
