This proposed grant is to continue work on the Deeper Learning Student Assessment Initiative, which establishes a new model of achievement and accountability for students and teachers. It seeks to make broadly available a set of online performance assessments known as the Deeper Learning Student Assessment System. The system, aligned with the Common Core State Standards, uses performance assessments as a means to increase student achievement on deeper learning measures. It is a formative assessment, designed to modify teaching and learning to focus on the knowledge and skills that help students develop a complex understanding of an academic discipline.

Grants to this Grantee
for a deeper learning community of practice focused on assessment
This proposed grant would foster a community of practice among the eight school operators in our proof points network. It aims to develop a collective sense of purpose, vision, and shared projects among the network members and to continuously improve instructional practices and student results within their schools. Activities will include network-wide forums, study tours designed to share exemplary practices and create collective accountability, and documentation of lessons learned to help promote deeper learning practices outside the proof points network.
