May 30, 2013

Date: May 30, 2013, 12:30–2:00 p.m. ET

Part 1 of the “Developing Savvy Students: College and Career Readiness Bridge Event Series” Co-Hosted by REL Northeast and Islands and REL Northwest.

Proficiency-based learning and graduation requirements is a new approach to assessing student learning and reporting on student progress. The goal of proficiency-based learning policies is to meet the needs of students more effectively than current Carnegie unit and seat-time requirements, and could increase high school completion rates and help ensure students are ready for life after graduation. REL-NEI’s Northeast College and Career Readiness Research Alliance hosts this Bridge Webinar with Dr. Thomas Guskey to explore emergent research on proficiency-based grading. Dr. Robert Marzano, Director of REL Central, serves as a discussant. Both presenters will speak to the challenges and essential components of this reform.

Part 2: Staying on Track for College and Career Readiness will be hosted by REL Northwest in June.

Audience: State and local education officials, district and school administrators, teacher leaders, researchers, and state-level policymakers in both the Northeast and Islands and Northwest regions.
