Student Outcomes

The world is changing and so should education. We know that memorizing dates and content is not enough. Schools need to focus on helping children develop their critical thinking skills, their problem solving skills, their ability to collaborate, create and innovate. Many neuropsychologists and brain-based-learning researchers are commending the work of Montessori schools world-wide for these very things.

Twenty-first century skills cannot be measured by conventional school testing. Yet, assessment of these skills is still vital. Learning outcomes can be seen as both a process and a product in a Montessori classroom. The following qualities and skills help teachers to assess their students and can be used to create learning and assessment rubrics at all levels. For more detailed information please got to
