Elements of Effective Instruction​

The Elements of Effective Instruction framework outlines five intertwined elements of instructional practice that complement and enhance one another. 

Proficiency-Based Learning

These tools are designed to help schools develop standards-based systems that will prepare all students for success in the colleges, careers, and communities of the 21st century.

Grading & Reporting

These tools highlight central practices that schools can use to ensure grading and reporting systems help build a nurturing, equitable, creative, and dynamic culture of learning.

Summative Assessment

These tools were built for educators to use as they design, critique, and refine summative assessments (as well as the scoring criteria) aligned to a proficiency-based learning system.

Educational Equity

These tools can help individuals or school communities understand and reflect on educational equity, while also evaluating their performance based on a variety of educational equity indicators.

Community Engagement

The tools can help guide educators, families, students, and other members of a school community toward a more equitable system of community engagement.

Professional Learning Groups

These resources can help your school community better understand the purpose of professional learning groups (PLGs) and to implement them in your specific context.

Using Data to Improve Schools

Gathering, disaggregating, analyzing, and sharing data about and with your school community is a powerful way to identify inequities in your policies and practices.
