Performance Assessments

Multi-step assessments with clear criteria, expectations, and processes that measure how well a student transfers knowledge and integrates complex skills to create or refine an original product.

Learning Pathways

Descriptions of how students will develop and demonstrate deeper broader and more sophisticated understanding over time, with flexible pacing of learning.

Evidence-Based Grading

Change - Understanding systems, culture and your “Why?”

Viewing the role of culture in the systems change process, you unearth/revisit your “Why?” for change.

Looking at various influencers of change, using the Knoster modelof effective change,we unpack how systems are designed to get the results they do.


Shifts in teaching, learning and the learner.

Explore policies, pace of instruction, and the role of assessment to give you a more intentional review of your shifts around leadership, teaching & learning, and the role of the learner.

Core Componentsof CBE

Review the 5 core components of CBE with an emphasis on personalized learning. Start to articulate your “Why?” as a problem of practice based on the interrelationships of the core components as defined by the Aurora Institute.

Identify purposeful pathways

Understand the purpose and process of a readiness assessment and consider, “Where in your sphere of influence is there an opportunity to make a change?” If ready to make a change, use the provided tools and strategies to make the shift and assess the impact.

Growth model, feedback cycle, student-centered design.

Building a student-centered system with agency, equity, and continued growth at the center requires a
working knowledge ofthe impact each lever of change may have on others. Using PBL as a model for delivery of instruction, you identify microshifts for implementation.

Align to policy, practice, and public will

As you conclude the Accelerator, collaborative activities help you refine your chosen pathways and action plans to ensure success when the “rubber meets the road”.
