RI Learning Champions

In 2017, the Rhode Island Learning Champions, a group of 100 educators, came together to design and build a set of proficiency frameworks to serve as a model for Rhode Island.  The Rhode Island Department of Education believes that the Learning Champion project will continue to build a solid foundation for proficiency based learning in Rhode Island. RIDE's intent is not to espouse a particular modality or delivery system for proficiency-based learning, but rather to support and encourage the growth of the most effective systems and models.  As such, we provide these Proficiency Frameworks as models for schools and districts to support their work across grade levels and content areas. 


The Cross-Curricular Proficiency Frameworks include graduation proficiencies, performance indicators, and scoring criteria for the following skills: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Research, and Reflection and Evaluation.   


The Content Area Proficiency Frameworks including graduation proficiencies and K-12 performance indicators, aligned to state-adopted standards. 

Click on the content area name to view the rubrics. Scoring criteria for content areas will be completed during Phase 2 of the Learning Champion work, during the 2018-2019 school year.
