Learning is important But Skill based learning is more important

Earlier the focus have been on how they could train the learners on certain topic. With the skill based learning that focus is on how that topic can help users develop and learn certain Skills.

Using these Skills, learning is more concrete as compared to knowledge based learning which makes it extremely fine grained
Learners can focus on one competency at one time, which is likely a small component of a larger goal

It also gives the learner the ability to skip a particular module which they have mastered already

Skills based learning is learner focused and works naturally with independent study

With summative testing a learner who has 80% in an evaluation may have an 80% mastery of all learning outcomes or may have no mastery what-so-ever of 20% of the learning outcomes. Further, this student may be permitted to move on to higher learning and still be missing some abilities that are crucial to that higher learning.

A student who knows most traffic laws and has mostly mastered controlling a vehicle could be treated equally to a student who has a very high mastery of vehicle control but no understanding of traffic laws, but only one of those students should be permitted to drive.
