NG2 Collaborative Learning Design

Funded by a grant from


through the Assessment for Learning Project

Personalized Inclusive Education Pathways looks to take New Hampshire to the next level of personalized learning as it tackles long-standing educational barriers to personalized learning… that of “Grades.” In this context, the team has recognized that two forms of grades exist in their schools that act as impediments:

  • Grades as student assessments that often don’t truly reflect students’ understandings and skills
  • Grades as methods for grouping students (by age) that often poorly align to their true needs as learners.

Collaborative Learning Design is an Assessment for Learning Project (ALP), a partnership of the Center for Innovation in Education and Next Generation Learning Challenges.  ALP is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
