QED builds and disseminates models to help others understand what student-centered learning innovation looks like.

Making Community Connections Charter School (MC2) is a competency-based middle/high school program for students seeking “choice and voice” in their educational experience.

QED served as the primary technical assistance provider to the Asia Society International Studies School Network Project Mastery initiative, funded by the Gates Foundation. We worked with Denver, Houston, and Newfound, NH school districts to develop demonstrations of proficiency-based pathways and capturing mastery in digital portfolios.

In addition, we have worked with the Iowa Department of Education, 10 New England school districts, the Freeport School District (IL), and Illinois Competency Based Education Pilot (facilitated by AIR) to provide facilitation and coaching for transformation to high quality, student-centered, standards-based learning for every student.
