Transforming how we assess student learning & school quality
The Education Commonwealth Project works to challenge and expand the way student learning and school quality are assessed, advancing an approach to measurement and accountability that is valid, democratic, and equitable. ECP supports schools and communities with free and open-source tools, and broadly seeks to foster state- and national-level change.
Stakeholders identify what is most important to know about school quality. Multiple measures provide a robust picture of school strengths and areas for improvement.
Teachers lead the design of curriculum-embedded performance assessments and the scoring of student work. Students demonstrate what they know and can do through real-world application.
