Wisconsin is leading the way in offering competency-based degrees: essentially testing-out for an entire degree or most of it.
Wisconsin officials tout the UW Flexible Option as the first to offer multiple, competency-based bachelor's degrees from a public university system. 
With so many options to learn the subjects from MOOC ("massively open online courses) like Udacity and coursera the last missing step was how to get the knowledge "accredited".  Wisconsin is addressing that now.
No classroom time is required under the Wisconsin program except for clinical or practicum work for certain degrees.
A public University system, where Republicans control the state assembly, senate and a Republican is the Governor, leads the way !
