The student narrators describe the benefits of a more accurate assessment system which recognizes failure as a step in the learning process, a personalized approach, and the ability to move at the pace that is comfortable in each subject. The presentation also covers the key components needed to achieve proficiency and provides concrete examples. Lastly, the presentation discusses the development of 21st-century skills that will help students through college and career and also addresses the fears students might have about acceptance of non-traditional report cards at colleges and universities.
