Issues in Putting Outcome-Based Education into Practice at the District Level: A Panel Discussion.
Norton, Deborah
This conference presentation describes the AUEN (Addressing Unique Education Needs) system of assessing educational outcomes which is used by the Rochester (Michigan) Community Schools to help establish accountable and effective special education support programs and services. The AUEN provides an innovative and practical approach to assessment, by presenting a set of performance indicators that are tied to functional adult living roles. It addresses such needs of students as communication, interpersonal relationships, emotional development, daily living skills, decision making, and personal goal orientation. The AUEN provides a broad perspective on educational needs, a long range focus, a common frame of reference, and assessment strategies for determining student progress toward achievement of outcomes. When whole groups of students perform below established expectations, schools should systematically review their structure and programs. Several supporting materials are appended to the conference presentation. These address implementing the outcomes approach, managing change, and learner characteristics. (JDD)
