Our mission is to transform the lives of students - especially those who will be first in their families to attend college - by preparing them for success in college, career, and life.
What We Do
At ELP, we partner with administrators and teachers to help them use and adapt cutting-edge performance assessment resources developed by experts at Stanford University and tested in real schools. Using these resources, school leaders design and implement rigorous, reliable systems for evaluating learning and providing actionable feedback that meet the unique needs of their students. Starting from their vision for the knowledge, skills and dispositions each of their students should have when they graduate, we coach school leaders on tailoring performance assessment systems to support the development of those particular skills and strengths.
This approach gives schools and districts the tools they need to give every student an educational experience where they feel confident and valued. In doing so, we move closer to a future of truly equitable education that equips every student for the day after graduation--and produces lifelong learners with real power and opportunity.
