Beyond academic measures: The value of measuring other aspects of thriving

Chris Smith and Elizabeth Devaney

Oct. 7, 2011

This symposium focuses on how to assess important non-academic outcomes such as the impact of programs on youths' engagement in their own learning, their socio-emotional development, and whether they are thriving, contributing, and able to navigate effectively. Our speakers examine how systems in Boston and Providence have studied such outcomes while engaging people in Minnesota who are thinking about these issues.

This event is presented in cooperation with St. Paul’s new Sprockets network.
