There is nothing inherently bad about measuring the progress of young learners as they navigate their learning journeys. This fact can often be missed in a day and age where data gathering has become synonymous with “one-size-fits-all.”
What if the way we measured learning was different? What if we defined and measured a brand new set of outcomes that put the learner at the center? The leaders at Education Evolving have tackled this possibility head on in their publication: Defining and Measuring Student-Centered Outcomes. Divided into three parts, the publication explores what research says about how we have and how we should measure learning outcomes; asks us to consider the purpose behind what we’re measuring today and tomorrow; and illuminates a vision for the future that we can all take action on today.
