Developing Learning Progressions In Support Of The New Science Standards: A Rapid Workshop Series, Aaron Rogat Nov 2011

Developing Learning Progressions In Support Of The New Science Standards: A Rapid Workshop Series, Aaron Rogat

CPRE Research Reports

The hypothetical learning progressions presented here are the products of the deliberations of two working groups of science education researchers, each group also including a state science curriculum supervisor, organized by the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE),with support from the National Science Foundation. Their charge was to produce hypothetical learning progressions describing the pathways students might be expected to follow as they acquire deep understanding of two of the core learning goals set by the National Research Council’s (NRC) Committee on a Conceptual Framework for the New K-12 Science Education Standards. The goals in question address ...


Growing School Networks For Instructional Improvement In Jordan, 2009-2010, Marian A. Robinson Aug 2011

Growing School Networks For Instructional Improvement In Jordan, 2009-2010, Marian A. Robinson

CPRE Research Reports

In the last decade, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has made a substantial commitment to improving the quality of its public education system. The main vehicle for this work has been the Education Reform for Knowledge Economy (ERfKE) initiative. To date, key investments have been made in early childhood education, school infrastructure, technology, and curriculum development. The emphasis has been placed on the development of skills essential to Jordan’s emerging knowledge economy and the use of technology both as a skill set and a delivery platform for the new curriculum. The second phase of this initiative, ERfKE II, which ...


Learning Trajectories In Mathematics: A Foundation For Standards, Curriculum, Assessment, And Instruction, Phil Daro, Frederic A. Mosher, Thomas B. Corcoran Jan 2011

Learning Trajectories In Mathematics: A Foundation For Standards, Curriculum, Assessment, And Instruction, Phil Daro, Frederic A. Mosher, Thomas B. Corcoran

CPRE Research Reports

Learning Trajectories in Mathematics: A Foundation for Standards, Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction aims to provide:

  • A useful introduction to current work and thinking about learning trajectories for mathematics education
  • An explanation for why we should care about these questions
  • A strategy for how to think about what is being attempted in the field, casting some light on the varying, and perhaps confusing, ways in which the terms trajectory, progression, learning, teaching, and so on, are being used by the education community.

Specifically, the report builds on arguments published elsewhere to offer a working definition of the concept of learning trajectories ...
