People for Education: Measuring what Matters

January 6, 2015 at 2:51 pm Leave a comment

People for Education (you should think about bookmarking this Ontario organization too) has created an  initiative named Measuring What Matters , that their web page describes as ” The goal of Measuring What Matters is to create a set of reliable, valid measures that are publicly understandable, educationally useful and reflect the broad skills students will need in the workforce and to take their place as engaged citizens.”

The Measuring What Matters site has 5 domains:

  1. Health
  2. Creativity & Innovation
  3. Social-Emotional skills
  4. Citizenship
  5. Quality Learning Environments

And, in each domain ( I like that word domain…so much better than silo) you also have access to People for Education reports,  and research and articles from external organizations, plus the opportunity to participate in  the conversation/dialogue by adding  your own comments.
