how far have you come in your learning journey?
At ALP, our goals center on learning and growth for our educator partners. We work closely with districts to ensure that all learners have voice in their professional growth and development. Our alternative metrics leverage collaboration among teaching colleagues, personal choice and reflection by educators, and formative feedback that amplifies growth not compliance.
See our Field Notes below to get more information on ALP's cutting edge alternative metrics:
ALP's Classroom-based Action Research Reporting (CARR) tool provides educators with a step-by-step process for conducting research in the classroom. Educators can find support for new instruction strategies, education models, or technology by clarifying their goals, gathering evidence for impact on learning, reflecting on and sharing findings with colleagues.
Given ALP’s coaching model, we needed a tool to focus on creativity and innovation, 21st Century Skills, personalized learning, and formative assessment. We developed and validated the Profile for Innovative Educators (PIE) as a streamlined digital tool that facilitates educator choice, reflection, and collaboration with colleagues in professional learning.
ClassTalk ® is an intensive coaching process that involves ongoing communication, observation, modeling, and recorded instruction analysis. ALP's detailed reporting includes embedded instruction video analysis, strategic goal planning and assessment, and professional growth trends.
