In traditional academic settings, academic standards and testing must be taken into account when implementing Challenge Based Learning. Fortunately, the open architecture of the framework enables the learners to address academic standards, curriculum content and testing to meet the demands of their specific context.
Challenge Based Learning is a framework for efficient thinking, learning and problem solving that can be used to support a range of learning goals. Challenges can be designed to address specific curriculum standards and objectives, they can be focused on an achievement expectations, or can be approached broadly where the learners are charged with aligning the experience to the applicable standards and learning goals.
