HighScope Indonesia aims to develop “total child” quality in its students--that is for students to develop academically, intrapersonally, interpersonally, and physically. To bring this mission into action, we develop the HighScope Indonesia Learner Outcomes. This is our formulation of a set of life skills our graduates will master once they graduate from our school. The life skills were designed within a holistic learning and assessment system. We conducted literature research and field observation to develop the rubric as the assessment.
HighScope Indonesia Institute endeavors to ensure that a designed school program is aligned with an objective to produce graduates who are future-ready. Graduates who are ready for the future encompasess a number of qualities or life skills, such as expert thinking, creativity and innovation, audience-centered communication, and synergistic collaboration, among others. These life skills are referred to as the HighScope Indonesia Learner Outcomes. In 2016, the Learner Outcomes assessment system was in its early stage of development. We believe that it was imperative to study our grade 12 students’ Learner Outcomes achievement since the early stage of development, to capture opportunities for improvement.
This research is a continuation of the 2016 research, examining the factors influencing student achievement of the Learner Outcomes. It examines how teachers implement the seven key components of the school’s learning process: rigorous learning content, comprehensive assessment, strategies, atmosphere, environment, activities, and support. We believe that the implementation of these components affects the quality of our students’ achievement in the Learner Outcomes.
