Happy high summer everyone! This is the time of year when some of us take on projects we don’t have time to tackle during the busy school year. We’d like to offer some suggestions to those of you whose summer projects include revamping or revisiting your standards bank. This list of “pain points” and corresponding suggestions come from our several years of experience in working with schools and districts as they create resources and tools to best describe the learning students do and to most easily allow them to report out on that learning. We hope some of you find this post helpful as you get ready for the 2016-2017 school year. More+
