Aurora Institute And Center For Assessment Publish New Report To Build A Vision For Balanced Systems of Assessments In A Guide For States And Districts

This press release came across my electronic desk.


NEWS PROVIDED BY Aurora Institute 

Jan 15, 2020, 06:40 ET


WASHINGTON and DOVER, N.H.Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Aurora Institute and the Center for Assessment published a report with guidance for state leaders to build better and more balanced assessment systems, with the ultimate goal of achieving equitable outcomes for all learners.

The organizations jointly released How Systems of Assessments Aligned with Competency-Based Education Can Support Equity to transform current policy and practice challenges into levers for change.

More and more states and districts are exploring how to move to competency-based education systems. If our education systems are to adequately prepare our learners for the complex challenges of tomorrow, these underlying structures and systems—of accountability, assessments, teaching, and learning—must be purposefully-designed to support new, multi-faceted definitions of success. Assessment systems play an instrumental role in supporting the development of high-quality, equitable education systems. States and districts looking to modernize education systems are asking for guidance on how to move forward in the next 5 -10 years. Balanced assessment systems, aligned with personalized competency-based learning, offer invaluable opportunities to innovate K-12 education. The report explores the barriers and levers for change.

Using the principles from the Aurora Institute equity framework, the new report maps strategies to redesign K-12’s approach to assessment in a competency-based learning context. For example, it recommends new assessment systems have:

  • A focus on deeper learning targets and transfer of knowledge
  • Timely, differentiated supports along pathways to competence
  • Variable pathways and demonstrations to document learning
  • Balanced assessment systems to support continuous learning activities and accountability

The report carves a new role for state policy leaders, such as attending to uneven levels of capacity within districts to take on this work and by piloting new approaches to assessment and accountability.

“This is a necessary paradigm shift,” said Susan Patrick, president and CEO of the Aurora Institute. “When aligned to a competency-based education approach, systems of assessments can play an important role as part of a coherent system of teaching and learning that advances equity by ensuring that all students are supported in meeting key learning and development targets.”

What Could a Shift Toward a Whole Child Approach Look Like in Schools? An Emphasis on Mental Health
We know from research and from the wisdom and experience of practice that far more than the academic competencies and the high school diploma are necessary for success in young adulthood. But if we only focus on those competencies, that is where our resources will go, and that is where our energies will go. And so we have to change that North Star to really reflect what we want for our kids to be successful in young adulthood.

We’re committed to leveraging personalization in this effort. We believe that personalization is about deeply understanding the unique passions, strengths, needs, and context of every learner and tailoring the learning environment to meet those needs. As we think about the whole-child approach that that requires, I want to ask you a few questions. What comes to mind if you could picture a student who is thriving academically?

What about a student who’s thriving physically?

Now, if I asked you to picture a student who’s thriving in their mental health, what does that look like? Was that a little bit harder?

iNACOL Report – Policy Brief Highlights Need For Higher Education Institutions To Create Systematic Changes Within Teaching

This report from the neo-liberals came through my inbox this past week.

Policy Brief Highlights Need for Higher Education Institutions to Create Systematic Changes Within Teaching

A new report by the Aurora Institute, previously known as iNACOL, details the need for higher education institutions to create systematic changes within the teaching field.

Titled “Transforming Teaching: What University Presidents and Deans of Colleges of Education Need to Know about Modernizing the K-12 Educator Workforce,” recommends three main policy changes including the need to “diversify the workforce, modernize teacher preparation and promote continuous professional learning and development.”

Dr. Katherine Casey

“We know that one of the most important things we can do to improve the quality of public education across our country is to improve the quality, sustainability and livability of our teacher workforce,” said Dr. Katherine Casey, who is the author of the policy brief. “Teaching is a profession that compared to many others, has yet to evolve. Keeping in pace with the changes in the way students learn, changes in our educational reality and environment.”

According to the Aurora Institute, Black students who have one Black teacher by 3rd grade are 13% more likely to enroll in college. Those who have two Black teachers by 3rd grade are 32 percent more likely to enroll in college.

Students of color who are educated by teachers of color report higher rates of safety and belonging. Additionally, students of color who have teachers of color face lower rates of disciplinary action, the Aurora Institute reported.

“Schools are better and kids learn better when they are able to spend time with representative adults,” said Casey. “Diversifying the teacher workforce is both an ethical and a practical issue. Ethical because it aligns with values of equity and social and racial justice and practical because outcomes are better for kids. And yet, we see nationwide, very little change in the diversity of the teacher workforce.”

To increase diversity, the brief recommends that higher education institutions recruit potential teachers who hold different racial, cultural and religious backgrounds. Higher education leaders can also create a call to action to diversify the teaching workforce.

In order to provide more opportunities for underrepresented and low-income individuals, the brief also suggested that local school districts forge partnerships with higher education leaders.

Under this partnership, for example, both postsecondary and alternative pathways such as substitute teaching and para-professional opportunities can be created. Postsecondary pathways allows students in high school to take college-level courses for credit.

“It’s important for us to have culturally responsive learning environments,” said Susan Patrick, president and CEO of the Aurora Institute. “The lived experience of educators coming from diverse backgrounds and representing the diversity that our students have as well is critical.”

In terms of modernizing the teaching workforce, the brief emphasized the importance of using innovations to focus on student-centered learning and teaching.

Additionally, schools can also integrate adult learning with research and the learning science. This can include mentorship, residency with clinical practice, project-based and personalized learning, the brief stated.

Susan Patrick

For continuous education learning and development, the brief recommends that higher education leaders work with state education agencies to develop multi-tiered systems of licensure and credentialing, offer opportunities for ongoing learning and micro credentialing through orientations and diversify programs to develop distributed leaders.

In addition to suggestions for higher education leaders, the brief also offers case studies to test out the theories, which focuses on implementing programs for competency-based learning and personalized learning environments. The case studies highlight the partnerships between Baltimore County Public Schools and Towson University; Southern New Hampshire and 2Revolutions; Virginia Department of Education and the College of William and Mary as well as the Dallas Independent School District.

According to Patrick, the goal for this report is that it will “ignite a challenge” for higher education leaders to transform the education system.

“We think that there are big opportunities so we would really like to see the presidents of universities and deans of these colleges of education recognize the role that they play in shaping K-12 education across the U.S. in state, in their communities,” said Patrick. “And that ultimately, the joint results of better aligning these systems will impact the outcome for students and the readiness for students that are going to come on their campuses and that are coming into our democratic society.”

Alongside this brief, the Aurora Institute also released two other reports that focused on challenging federal and state policymakers to change the K-12 system.

“My hope is that this brief contributes to a groundswell of interest and urgency around thinking very differently about teaching, not just teachers, but teaching as a profession and can elevate some very specific actions that higher education can take,” said Casey.

A Call to Action for Higher Education to Modernize Teaching
Last week, we released an issue brief, Transforming Teaching: What University Presidents and Deans of Colleges of Education Need to Know about Modernizing the K-12 Educator Workforce, which calls on institutions of higher education (IHEs) to leverage opportunities to transform the K-12 educator profession. Higher education has immense power to support the transformation of K-12 teaching and learning because it incubates future educators and supplies opportunities for professional development. University presidents and deans of colleges of education can use their influence to support systemic change to modernize the profession through a variety of tools and strategies that are at their unique disposal. This issue brief challenges institutions of higher learning to:

  • Diversify the educator workforce;
  • Modernize teacher preparation; and
  • Promote continuous professional learning and development.

The new brief comes on the heels of two other issue briefs that explore how federal and state policymakers can support systemic transformation of the profession. Together the three issue briefs expand on the seminal paper, Moving Toward Mastery, which described in vivid detail a new vision for modernizing the educator workforce. Like states, higher education leaders will approach this work from varying political, economic, and cultural contexts. This brief contains many entry points to initiate action. In addition, the brief contains case studies that illuminate how many institutions of higher education are already making great strides.

Download the full issue brief to explore these ideas in detail.
