Dilemma: Assessing habits of success.

Summit Public Schools has developed a personalized learning model that addresses four key elements of college and career readiness for every student.  

The organization has already developed a robust assessment system for cognitive skills and content knowledge. They are now turning their attention to Habits of Success and creating targeted assessments for learning for each of five categories they define for Habits of Success: emotional intelligence, self-directed learning, learning strategies, academic mindsets, and school & classroom culture.
