What if we use learning progressions to empower students and personalize learning?

It’s the teacher who establishes the expectation and the conditions so that each student can monitor his or her own learning progress and decide whether or not to make a learning tactic adjustment. (Popham, Kindle Locations 291-292)

The benefits of it, however, can be remarkable—namely, students who are actively reviewing their own classroom assessment data, connecting these outcomes to their own inputs, and making changes so that their efforts will yield more satisfactory results. (Popham, Kindle Locations 294-295)
