Indicator #1: Performance-Based Assessment
Indicator #2: Student Metacognition
Educators utilize performance-based assessments that enable students to demonstrate their capacity to transfer and apply knowledge. These assessments demonstrate the degree to which students integrate knowledge, skills, and higher-level thinking both within and across disciplines. Students work is evaluated based on common criteria, and results are analyzed and used over time to inform curriculum and instruction.
Indicator #3: Student Performance Data
Educators design and provide a learning environment that enables students to engage in metacognition continuously and systemically. As a result, students build the capacity over time to assess, reflect upon and make choices that advance their own learning.
Norm-referenced and criterion referenced tests provide data on student knowledge and higher level thinking. The district has in place a system for collecting, analyzing and disseminating student performance data to teachers and administrators. Teachers and administrators use this data collaboratively to make informed decisions on improved student performance.
