CCE staff and partner reflections on our collaborative work to create schools where learning is engaging and rewarding, and every student is set up for success.
Voices of the Assessment for Learning Project
The Assessment for Learning Project has partnered with over a dozen educational projects from areas all over the country. The point of these partnerships is to help educators and students shift their vision of assessment to a place where performance assessments tell the story of a student's learning -- rather than simply determining if that student has learned "enough." Last Spring, ALP sent its spies throughout the land to talk about the students involved in these projects. The Voices of ALP project shows that students think as deeply and critically about these issues as we do. It shows that we have so much to learn from our kids! Truism, to be sure, but one that bears repeating. Below are five of the students we spoke to, and you can listen to all of the others here.
