  • Institutions have a dire challenge in measuring and reading performance requirements from various programs. Blended learning has become a higher choice for several institutions as the numbers of enrolled students increase. This method will result in a higher turnover for students of professionals in the next and upcoming generations. This change will shift the academic role as institutions create opportunities for students on other areas of professional departments other than on-campus based programs. Even as institutions change role in the academic shift, areas of quality measurement will become missed or overlooked.Performance measurements tools help enhance new learning opportunities for institutions in future plans of academic change. Several variables control these methods and measurement tools, but also help institute new plans for change. Ideally, these institutions need to be able to assist with every program they are capable of as well as areas of new blended learning. Having a solvent (plan) for this type of platform will help overall in the quality of education for learners of this generation.

  • Students learn in a variety of ways, and then shape that learning into performance.

Significance of Performance Model

Performance models previously implemented are steeped in pedagogical outcomes of memorization.

New models should be wrapped in anagogical learning outcomes. This gives them a slight difference in appearance but a more effective enhancement towards the implementation stage.
