Assessments


The Competency Framework provides a free assessment suite of over 20 direct assessments for students, including a needs assessment, formative questionnaires, knowledge and situational judgement assessments, and performance-based reflections addressing numerous intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies. Performance-based observations, completed by educators or families, are also available. These assessments measure knowledge and skill development at the individual student level, with composite results across classrooms, grades, and schools. Implementation fidelity instruments are utilized throughout the professional development process.
