Tempo Learning® by Walden University is a way for students to earn their degree by demonstrating what they know, when they know it. Tempo Learning® allows students to have more control over their schedule and even impact the length of time their degree takes and total cost of their program.
The Tempo Learning® experience is competency-based, meaning students progress by demonstrating knowledge of a subject. It is a different way to complete their Walden degree vs. the traditional course-based experience. Competencies are the skills, knowledge, and abilities a student needs to be successful in their chosen career field and. students demonstrate competencies instead of completing courses. Competency Assessments are how students demonstrate their achievement of a specific competency.
