Blueprints (for Assessment)

Developing an assessment framework that contains enough structure to clearly communicate the growth of an individual learner while still retaining the learner's unique qualities is headache-inducing.

HundrED, an international organization scanning the globe for innovative practices in education, has put the spotlight on this challenge and brought forward the learner-centered work of California-based MUSE School. In particular, they’ve highlighted MUSE’s work in Blueprintsa framing for “an holistic assessment method that addresses every aspect of a student’s learning experience, including their abilities to live and contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.” HundrED partnered with MUSE to provide educators a step-by-step look at what’s needed to implement this assessment strategy. Consider the possibility a learner Blueprint might create in your community, and let us know how you would adapt it for your learners.
