More and more states and districts are developing a Portrait of a Graduate in an effort to ensure all students gain the skills and mindsets needed to thrive in our complex, rapidly changing world. These Portraits provide a vision for educators, students, and the community, but in order for young people to fully achieve that vision the desired competencies must be measured and taught.

Watch this edWebinar as education leaders and assessment experts discuss:

  • Common challenges and solutions to move from vision to practice
  • Using innovative assessment to improve outcomes
  • Lessons learned from a Virginia district’s journey
