Video: Assessment at the WW Graduate School

With a challenge- and competency-based curriculum, the WW Graduate School can’t rely on traditional assessment methods to measure the growth of its master’s candidates. Instead the Graduate School has created its own way of gauging candidates’ readiness.

Based on research, work with MIT, and a knowledge of what core skills a novice teacher must master to succeed, Courtney Castle is shaping the direction of measurement at the WW Graduate School as its Senior Assessment Designer.

In this video, Dr. Castle talks about the philosophy driving her work at the WW Graduate School. The WW Graduate School aims to prepare the very best teachers for the classrooms and learning spaces of today and tomorrow. The Graduate School measures how each teacher candidate masters core skills and knowledge, and candidates move through the curriculum and the program as they demonstrate what they’ve learned. Through its innovative approach, tailored to each candidate’s needs, the WW Graduate School is ensuring that all its graduates are well prepared for the realities they will face as teachers of record.
