For Planning And Piloting A Project To Assess Interpersonal And Intrapersonal Competencies
Type of SupportProject
The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) provides technical consulting and support to schools and districts that use performance-based assessment for evaluating student learning and measuring school performance. In a partnership with the RAND Corporation, SCALE will undertake a pilot project to examine how students’ completion, display, and defense of complex projects contributes to their development of deeper learning competencies; the pilot will include assessing competencies by collecting evidence of student behaviors via online learning management systems. Evidence of the feasibility and utility of assessments of hard-to-measure deeper learning competencies will be essential to expanding their use.
