:

  • Each student should have the opportunity to develop and to be evaluated on the competencies achieved.
  • Assessment of competency is not only based on knowledge and attitude but primarily on the actual demonstration of the competency.
  • Competency standards are used as the basis for assessing achievement and students should be aware of them.
