Cities in Schools Program

In modern schools... Assessment happens through Meaningful Student Involvement. Learn more at SoundOut.org.A teacher with the Cities in Schools program in New York City engaged her students as evaluators in order to transform her practice.

She wanted to provide students with the experience of being in charge while helping them to develop skills in written and oral communication and logic. Believing students must be treated- and must see themselves- as working evaluators, the teacher also believed staff members could get usable information about their programs from student evaluators. Throughout, she assured students their evaluations were real and would be used in the programs.
