CIE is an ideal crossroads for building networks that connect policymakers, educators, administrators, researchers, the media, and more in the search for inspiration and support in developing transformed learning experiences.
This page marks the beginning of a showroom for new actions and ideas that can assist or inspire the efforts of education innovators. We invite your contributions, and will compile some of our own observations and impressions that might spark important conversations or developments. We believe in the power of ideas to build off one another.
The Hewlett Assessment for Learning Working Group, in which CIE participates, has developed a series of design principles to help educators support the development of student autonomy and agency in all students through assessment for learning practice. Read the paper, Principles for Assessment Design and Use to Support Student Autonomy here.
Our guide, Essential Skills & Dispositions: Developmental Frameworks for Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Self-Direction, was published in 2015 in partnership with the Educational Policy Improvement Center in Eugene, OR. Each framework addresses inter-personal and intra-personal dimensions of the skills and identifies experiences students need to be able to understand, practice, and demonstrate the skill in varying contexts.
With the release of the paper Leadership for Learning, CIE intends to spark thinking and collaborations that will lead to an actionable understanding of what leadership means in the new education environment.
New Hampshire’s Performance Assessment of Competency Education (PACE) represents a fundamental shift in the way accountability assessments are developed, administered, and used to promote teaching and learning. PACE was created to support deeper learning, and to be more integrated into students’ day-to-day work. As part of its continued support to New Hampshire and the field of competency education generally, CIE sponsored a formative evaluation of PACE. Find the associated Policy Brief here.
