Additional Book Details

Measure what matters for deeper learning


Getting at the heart of what matters for students is key to deeper learning that connects with their lives, but what good is knowing what matters without also understanding how to bring it to life? What does it really take to know who students are, what they are truly learning, and why? 



Measuring Human Return solves this dilemma with a comprehensive, systematic process for measuring deeper learning outcomes. Educators will learn to assess students’ self-understanding, knowledge, competencies, and connections through vignettes, case studies, learning experiences and tools. The book helps readers:

Develop key system capabilities to build the foundation for sustainable engagement, measurement, and change
Discover five comprehensive "frames" for measuring deeper learning
Engage in the process of collaborative inquiry 
Commit to the central, active role of learners by engaging them as partners in every aspect of their learning 

Discover how to take an authentic, formative, and inquiry-driven approach to measuring the outcomes that drive deeper learning.




The book really hits the mark. The best thing about it is the in-depth discussion of systems. It is with great pleasure that I read and re-read this book. It delivers a good combination of big vision with specific strategies and techniques.
