High Quality Performance Assessment

Strengthen Teaching Through High-Quality Performance Assessment
Envision Learning Partners are field-leading experts in performance assessment—the art and science of evaluating students’ learning through demonstrations of skill—and we partner with schools and districts to help them design and implement high-quality performance assessments for their students.
Our approach is rooted in the principles of High-Quality Performance Assessment (HQPA), the culmination of two decades of research, practice, and partnership between Envision Schools and the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE).
Through ELP coaching and professional development, the teachers in your system can
  • design and implement curriculum-embedded, high-quality performance tasks
  • assess student learning on standards that can only be measured through performance
  • develop effective and equitable assessment tools (such as rubrics)
  • calibrate with colleagues on the quality of student work
  • ensure that project-based learning is rigorous and aligned to desired outcomes
  • make assessment a lever for equity

ELP helps schools and districts all over the country to design and implement portfolio-defense systems, customized to their context.

Portfolios are an effective and flexible form of assessment because they can wrap themselves around any kind of evidence, and they enroll the learner in the curation of that evidence. Defenses of learning naturally function as rites of passage, making them powerfully motivating and intensely meaningful for young people.
