Monday, July 27, 2015Printer-friendly version


In 2015, leaders within Achieve’s Competency-Based Pathways State Partnership set out to more clearly understand the potential of learning progressions research to transform instructional practice and what is being done to translate that research into training and tools for educators. After a series of conversations with experts in the learning sciences, Achieve convened a set of state leaders, researchers and practitioners to identify promising efforts and steps to ensure state and district leaders can utilize this growing base of research. This report captures key findings from that conversation and identifies areas for further work.
