At Center for Collaborative Education, we work closely with educators to help them develop the design skills for implementing equitable systems that help students pursue engaging, rich work. Here's what a few of our clients are saying about us.
"I really appreciated the roll out of the Quality Performance Assessment Institute. It was laid back and we had a lot of self discovery and revelations as we worked through each task. When ever I started to feel lost a conversation brought me back and reaffirmed I was on the right track. It is so awesome to have an instructor that values and respects us enough as professionals to work with us and not talk at us!"
“The Quality Performance Assessment process is really useful because it’s so defined. It has very simple protocols and is very clear for the staff to understand.”
“To be able to put a Tool onto something that we were all thinking about separately and show some consistency and uniformity has been helpful."
“My students love working with project-based assessments. They allow all students to have an entry point and find success in a way they may not in a stressful test environment.”
“Our Quality Performance Assessment work was a real, natural way of developing tasks where the staff had been stuck. Also, having a transparency piece for the students is a very different way that my personal practice has changed. The students need to know, ‘What are the teachers doing now?’, ‘Where are the teachers going with this assessment and what does it mean?’ The rubrics are much better defined now that it makes it a lot clearer for the students.”
“Oh, my goodness, I thought CCE's support was excellent. I would just put up a question and in the next hour it would be answered."
"My students' work, I think, has been much better. The quality has been very different than what I have been getting in the past.”
"I have felt, along the way, very supported and as if I was really more in control of the pieces and parts.”
