Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe identified the stages where desired results could be achieved and then planned instruction and learning experiences that would mirror those results.
Learner-centered, performance-based learning specifies desired results knowledge, skills, and attitudes in advance of instruction; explicitly states standards used to measure performance, requires learners to perform the competency as evidence of achievement, and provides learners with opportunities to develop each competency.
As a result, cadets: Cadets demonstrate the skills, apply the knowledge, and model or exhibit behaviors representing the desired attitudes; thus, assessment tasks serve as tools for verifying and documenting that cadets have mastered the competencies.
To help instructors and cadets determine when cadets have reached proficiency, each competency is defined by a set of performance standards that are compared against assessment tasks or scoring guides rubrics. Instructors benefit from the scoring guides with grading consistency; feedback on their teaching techniques when there are high successes or failures; and providing documentation for JROTC and school inspection and accreditation processes.
Three different types of assessments are used: Traditional assessments focus on fundamental curriculum knowledge through the use of classroom assessments, assignments, tests, quizzes, and standardized tests.
These assessments can be completed and maintained through the CPS program. Cadet portfolios focus on process, product, and growth. Key features are reflection, goals setting, emotional intelligence, academic growth over time, and self evaluation.
Instructors are required to review portfolios with cadets annually and, if possible, more often. Cadets maintain scores for specific competencies for each LET and cadets reflect on their experiences. Over the course of the four years, cadets and instructors have documentation of growth.
This record is a required component of the program and will be reviewed during inspections and accreditation processes.
Required content in the portfolios is outlined in CCR Inspection evaluation criteria of cadet portfolios include the following: Cadets document mastery of the competencies by completing performance assessment tasks included in the Student Learning Plans, or by completing an adaptation of the assessment task developed by the instructor.
Combining informal assessments such as completing performance assessment tasks included in the curriculum or by completing an adaptation of the assessment tasks are required to demonstrate mastery of the competencies.
Adaptations should be rated using a scoring guide such as a rubric that includes the criteria for the target competency. Learner-centered activities dominate the cadet learning experience and allow cadets to continuously engage in all learning stages inquire, gather, process, and apply of the learning process.
Peer collaboration and teaching, group discussions and interaction, hands-on activities, and other activities allow for active learning in contrast to listening to Power Point lectures.
Following the cues provided in the curriculum managed lessons will enable instructors to facilitate the learning process for the cadets. Each unit provides mentally and physically challenging integrated or co-curricular activities that include some or all of the following:Last month, I mentioned the self-congratulatory dedication of the Transbay Terminal, another San Francisco project years behind schedule and tens of millions of dollars more expensive than represented to taxpayers for over a decade.
