Competencies That Count: Strategies for Assessing High-Performance Skills

Lili Allen

Competencies That Count provides case studies of selected methodologies that schools and employers use to assess high-performance skills. It offers a starting point for those who seek to equip students with a broad range of skills, which are increasingly critical to success in secondary, postsecondary, and workplace education. Competencies That Count was produced by JFF in collaboration with the Education Alliance/Northeast and Islands Regional Educational Laboratory at Brown University.
