LEARNER-CENTERED ASSESSMENT

Design a Systemic, Balanced, and Learner-Centered Assessment Framework

The Core Collaborative Learning Network supports systems in designing a systemic, balanced, learner-centered assessment framework. The goal of our learner-centered assessment pathway is to empower students to take ownership of their learning by amplifying the power of feedback, discussion and collaboration in school, college, career and life! 

Classroom assessment that involves students in the process and focuses on learning can motivate rather than merely measure students.
