It lists policy examples from eight states that grant the flexibility and autonomy needed to implement competency-based education. Those policy examples are: seat-time waivers, credit flexibility, pilot programs, innovation zones, proficiency-based diplomas, multiple graduation pathways, a state graduate profile, and statewide competencies.
