The Journal of Competency-Based Education
The Journal of Competency-Based Education (JCBE) is published by Western Governors University and John Wiley & Sons, Inc. It is a peer-reviewed, online journal intended for circulation in the higher education community. With an emphasis on rapid review and dissemination, JCBE aims to advance knowledge through theoretical and empirical study across arenas of inquiry related to competency-based education and its evolution. Through dissemination of research, reviews, original conceptual articles, emerging policies, best practices, and commentary, JCBE furthers the study, documentation, and practice of competency-based education.
Designed as a primary source of information about competency-based education for educators, researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, JCBE promotes the connection between learning sciences and assessment of outcomes for students. Through JCBE's peer review process, the journal contributes to current scholarship and assures academic rigor, while encouraging innovation in the field of higher education.
JCBE will be published four times a year and submissions will be reviewed throughout the year on a rolling basis. JCBE welcomes submissions from educators, scholars, administrators, government officials, and others on topics relating to benefits, challenges, practices, trends, and developments associated with competency-based education.
