Is Your School Achieving Equity? Brainstorming Alternative Holistic Measures of School Quality

Feedback form is now closed.
With classrooms across the country becoming more personalized, student-centered, and focused on deeper learning, we are in dire need of new methods for measuring school success--methods that go beyond test scores, graduation rates, and college enrollments. Understanding how well a school supports students in mastering academic content is indeed critical, but our current measures are not sufficient to holistically and equitably determine long-term success and subsequently today’s schools’ quality. It’s time we come together to brainstorm and develop methods for measuring how well our schools--as well as our communities--support students in acquiring the deeper learning competencies that we know to be key indicators of student success in college, career, and civic life.

JFF, in partnership with Urban Institute, has been investigating such measures in the REMIQS (Robust and Equitable Measures for Identifying Quality Schools) research study. In this session, members of the research team will briefly share the study’s underpinning philosophy, methods, and early findings with participants. Participants will then engage in group discussions and activities through which, using the REMIQS model as a starting point and with an eye on equity, they will identify new measurements to apply to their data collection processes and interpretation back at home, and leave with specific next steps for making their local school quality measurement systems more holistic and equitable.
