Testing program

But when it comes to academic and thinking skills, it is not just intelligence and grit that make the difference – but student ethics, engagement and empowerment. Cognitive and developmental science research shown that students who are more actively involved in extracurricular, community-based activities, social causes and solving real-world problems are more engaged in school, more empathetic, feel more empowered and are more likely to become active citizens. Learn how to increase student thinking, engagement and empowerment through greater student autonomy, choice, voice, purpose, passion, interest, real-world problem solving, social justice and social/community service. By moving away from high stakes testing and toward student empowerment and character, we can create the engaged, ethical students and citizens we need to change the world.
