Build a defensible body of evidence for student-centered learning

When it comes to tracking student progress, not all evidence is created equal. Using the IMPACT framework—illumination, multiple sources and opportunities, pedagogies that are learner-centered, assessment practices, collective actions, and transparency—K–12 leaders and teachers can forge a defensible body of evidence for learning that is central to competency-based learning systems. With tools and strategies, this book is an essential guide for deeper student-centered learning.

K–12 school leaders and teachers will:

  • Learn how IMPACT can help them build a rock-solid body of evidence, ensuring their schools meet all accountability measures
  • Discover how PLCs can support evidence collection and drive data-driven decision making
  • Design assessments that illuminate deep learning and empower learners, resulting in high-quality work
  • Understand how to implement diverse evidence sources—from rubrics and portfolios to personalized learning plans—to paint a complete picture of student progress
  • Master the art of equitable, evidence-based grading and reporting practices that support every learner’s unique journey
