Get Smart About Potential: Redefining Intelligence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Why do we have such an obsessive need to compare and label students? We would all be better off moving toward a culture of inspiration, where we only compare people to their past and future selves. This calls for intelligent testing as opposed to intelligence testing: deep evaluation that focuses on finding out a person’s strengths and weaknesses, and the characteristics that make them unique. This also means thinking about talent and potential as moving targets based on our engagement with something that is meaningful to us. It's time to take a holistic, practical approach to evaluation that helps students unlock their potential and reach their goals.
