The workshop will focus jurisdictional assessment and accountability of broad areas of student success in creativity, citizenship, health and social-emotional learning in schools and at system policy and assessment levels. The session considers the necessity of establishing congruence between local team based collaborative school assessment and large-scale jurisdictional measurement of student performance on assessment. This session describes the fourth year of a five-year partnership project, Measuring What Matters. The project is working with scholars, educators and policy-makers to re-think and broaden what ‘counts’ as indicators of system and school success or effectiveness in Ontario and internationally. The session will cultivate participant perspectives on education accountability and measurement-- how accountability frameworks can inhibit or enhance system capacity to cultivate learning environments that support broader areas of student learning and achievement.
