Using a Learning Progression Framework to Assess and Evaluate Student Growth

This report describes the use of a Learning Progression Framework (LPF) to support the Student Learning Objectives (SLO) process. The report highlights a few common threats we currently see in the SLO process implemented at various states and districts, and offers the LPF as a possible solution for addressing these threats. This report was inspired by our work piloting the LPF approach over the last two years with a small group of teachers and curriculum coordinators in the Denver Public Schools.
