JROTC Competencies


A competency is a major skill or ability needed to perform a task effectively and efficiently. Performance assessment is driven by competencies. Each JROTC lesson addresses a competency that is the intended learning result of the lesson.

Competencies describe discipline-specific measurable and observable skills, knowledge, and attitudes. Performance standards (criteria and conditions) provide the specifications for assessing mastery of a competency. Cadets show they have learned competencies by applying them in the completion of assessment tasks that require them to do one or more of the following:

    1. Decision making
    2. Skill performance
    3. Service performance
    4. Problem solving
    5. Creating a product
