(All on a Single Platform)
TM
XComP™ (eXtensible Competencies Platform) is a cutting-edge, patentpending technology that is redefining competency-based student assessment
and program evaluation. XComP™’s method utilizes microcompetencies as the
“building blocks” of competencies. XComP™ attaches microcompetencies to the
assessments administered within a program to visualize, in real-time, how their
students are performing. Comparisons can then be drawn across cohorts, and
even nationally, for student and program evaluation purposes.
XComP™ supports the instructional approaches used most often:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Lecture
Problem-based learning
Case-based learning
Laboratory
Simulation
Practicums and clinical experiences
Online learning
XComP™ is also compatible with most testing, curriculum, and clinical
management technologies.
Whatever the instructional approach, XComP™ maps assessments to learning
outcomes and competencies. XComP™ normalizes student performance across
all assessment methodologies to provide a composite, authentic assessment of
the individual student and cohorts of students.
XComP™ helps faculty identify student learning gaps and correct deficiencies in
real time. With the touch of a button, XComP™ gives students daily feedback on
their performance in specific competency areas. XComP™ provides administrators
one simple tool for curriculum mapping, student assessment, and program
evaluation. A variety of reports can be customized for program improvement
and accreditation reporting.
