The Learning Record

The Learning Record

The Learning Record provides a format for documenting student progress and achievement, based on interviews, observations over time, samples of students’ naturally-occurring work, and well-supported interpretations of learning across five dimensions. An 8-page print form (The Learning Record) was developed to facilitate the process. This information is now able to be collected and organized using a standalone database application that includes a selection of student work, prepared over the course of a semester or school year. The Learning Record provides a way of accounting for learning that is richer and more meaningful than standardized testing, yet provides much more consistency and comparability across student populations than conventional portfolio assessment.
