The Core Competencies are sets of intellectual, personal, and social and emotional proficiencies that all students need to develop in order to engage in deep learning and life-long learning (BC Ministry of Education).
The Core Competencies are about our learners – personalization, inclusion, and diversity. It is not filling in a template or checking off aspects on a rubric – it is about what students are becoming and how to support them (S. Jeroski).
Research suggests that reflection/self-assessment is the most powerful instructional strategy. The purpose of self-assessment/reflection is to enable students to understand the processes and products of their learning. This understanding is the foundation of new learning. The process of self-assessment is what matters; the form/record is less important (S. Jeroski).
Below you will find a plethora of resources to help you assist your learners to self reflect and self assess while authentically guiding them through the process of “noticing, naming, nurturing, and celebrating their Core Competencies.
