Some things the Center for Collaborative Education learned about collaboration from the Assessment for Learning Project's community of practice.
Over these five years, we've deepened our understanding of what is necessary for the successful implementation of performance assessment and QPA systems.
Educators cannot transform the system alone. The more we coordinate, the more likely we will be able to create the multiple pathways that schools, districts,and states need to create high quality personalized, competency-based systems that are equitable and fair.
CompetencyWorks' Chris Sturgis interviews Laurie Gagnon on the ins and outs of performance assessment.
"The goals of arts integrated tasks align strongly with QPA tasks, creating the potential for even higher quality tasks when the two are used together. When done well, arts integrated QPA tasks increase student engagement in their learning by connecting to relevant topics and expanding the ways students can represent their learning."

How can we create better assessments that drive better teaching and, ultimately, lead to better results in our schools?
