The Proficiency-based Assessment and Reassessment of Learning Outcomes System (PARLO) project helped teachers design high-valued learning outcomes, evaluated students on a proficiency-based scale, and allowed for resubmissions for full credit in a variety of modalities to foster student agency and success. The study was a cluster randomized controlled trial design of 29 schools in the Greater Philadelphia area in the USA . Students were 9th grade in algebra and geometry. Professor Posner will present the quantitative and qualitative results from this RCT .

Michael Posner is the Director of the Centre for Statistics Education and Associate Professor of Statistics at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Villanova University. His most recent publication is Using Fun in the Statistics Classroom: An Exploratory Study of College Instructors’ Hesitations and Motivations (Journal of Statistics Education, 2013) and he is currently funded by World Learning, The Frankling Institute, the 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education, and the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES) to advise the Egyptian Ministry of Education to establish and evaluate a STEM curriculum, 2012-2016.
