The Importance of Assessing Students’ Essential Learning Skills, Now
Critical thinking, problem solving, and effective communication are in-demand skills by both higher education institutions and employers — and they’re also essential to students’ success in secondary school. But do you know how well your students are developing these skills?
In this short video, Dr. Doris Zahner discusses why measuring students’ proficiency with critical learning skills ensures they’re able to apply and integrate content knowledge and confidently take their next steps.
Performance-Based Assessments Are the Future
Put Students’ Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Written Communication Skills to Work
Are students developing these essential skills as they progress through secondary school? Which areas do students need instruction and practice to strengthen? Is our curricula really providing opportunities for students to use these skills? The College and Career Readiness Assessment (CCRA+) answers these questions and more. This performance-based assessment situates students in real-world scenarios that require them to think critically, solve problems, and clearly write their responses — no multiple choice options here. CCRA+ identifies student strengths and opportunities for improvement, providing actionable insights to students, teachers, and administrators.
