The Rhode Island Learning Champions project, a collaborative effort of the Rhode Island Department of Education and the Great Schools Partnership, brings together outstanding Rhode Island educators and administrators to build the components of a proficiency-based learning system. The goal of this effort, funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, is to support high quality proficiency-based learning from K to 12 to ensure every graduate can think critically and collaboratively and can act as a creative, self-motivated, culturally competent learner and citizen in order to be prepared for postsecondary education, work, and life.Goals:
- Develop a community of RI practitioner-learners to explore and support Proficiency-Based Learning in their classrooms, schools and/or districts.
- Design sample assessments aligned to proficiencies, performance indicators and scoring criteria.
- Identify Leadership Learning Champions who will pilot the task created by the content area and grade span team with which they work. Overview and Information
