New England Reimagining College Access Collaborative: Community of Practice
Great Schools Partnership, in collaboration with the Learning Policy Institute, is facilitating the New England Reimagining College Access Collaborative Community of Practice. This exciting regional initiative is designed to explore how the use of K-12 performance assessments can provide better information about students’ preparedness for higher education. Through this initiative, we seek to engage with professionals from college admissions and secondary schools across New England who are interested in employing strategies to attract, select, and support a more diverse student body.
Community of Practice #4
2:00-3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 via Zoom
In this session, participants will look at ways that colleges currently ask applicants for evidence of transferable skills in both implicit and explicit ways. Using a shared list of transferable skills developed in a previous session, participants will work to create an outward facing description of how students can demonstrate particular transferable skills when they apply to colleges.
Investigation Team #3
2:00-3:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 via Zoom
In this session, participants will continue working on prospective actions by both secondary schools and institutions of higher education to change the way that students’ transferable skills can be both documented and assessed in the college admissions process.
