Almost every university or college has some level of interest in providing competency-based education (CBE) of some form. The primary motivator for their interest is delivering access to "non-traditional" learners, followed by a desire to improve completion rates and address workforce needs. CBE offerings are especially of interest to non-traditional students; nearly twice as many adult students as traditional-age students enroll in CBE courses.
