All Students Deserve a Quality Education

Our partnership with the New Hampshire Learning Initiative is instrumental to our path towards active, engaged, and innovative student-centered learning. We are grateful to work with people who understand the unique strengths and challenges of our K-8 school and assist us in creating a plan that works for our school district.

- Sondra Brake, Principal, Plainfield Elementary School

I have walked the assessment journey for many years having worn many hats. The work that we have done with NHLI on PACE tasks has been some of the most professionally rewarding work I've done thus far. The opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from other districts to co-construct meaningful and authentic performance assessments makes us ALL better. And it's the right thing to do for students.

- Mr. Chris Demers, Assessment Coordinator, Concord School District

A Picture of What They Really Know: Reflections on Grading in a Time of Remote Learning

The “why” has never really been a question. However, providing opportunities for application of these skills in real-world situations that can transfer outside the walls of the school has been a question that educators have been grappling with.
