The Competency Based Assessment (CBA) symposium is an annual event held in May, which brings together engineering students, educators, and professionals to discuss competency-based assessment. This much anticipated event features an intensive exploration of how learning improvement can be driven by competency-based assessment. We look forward to welcoming you May 2025.
