  1. Assessing with Respect: Everyday Practices That Meet Students' Social and Emotional Needs

    In this timely and thoughtful call to action, author and educator Starr Sackstein examines the critical intersection between assessment and social and emotional learning (SEL), particularly as it affects students of colour and other marginalised groups. The book addresses the five SEL competencies identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) – self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making – and explains how teaching students to develop their abilities in these areas can help them improve their learning and assessment experiences.

  5. Scheduling for Personalized Competency-Based Education

    Personalised competency-based education (PCBE) is a system of education in which students each learn at the individual pace and progress depends on mastery rather than age. While PCBE has countless benefits, one challenge of adopting this system is scheduling classes and organising learning on a daily basis. Scheduling for personalized competency-based education guides F–12 school leaders and teachers through resolving this issue. The authors offer an overview of the PCBE system, describe the use of student data as the foundation for PCBE scheduling and address various considerations related to creating a schedule that prioritises students’ learning needs. They detail the processes for structuring and transitioning to two types of PCBE schedules: (1) horizontal and (2) vertical.
