MSU PBE Summer Symposium Keynote videos
In June 2023, MSU offered a free, three-day symposium for Montana educators, administrators, policy makers, and pre-service teachers to share ideas and learn about PBE. The following three keynote speeches are from that symposium.
This section provides links to and/or summaries of books, videos, and articles that discuss PBE, CBE, standards-based grading, etc. These resources are designed to be accessible (fairly easy to read, watch, and/or understand) and practical (overviewing general concepts, explaining how to implement a concept, and/or generalizing research), although these resources do not constitute empirical studies.
This section provides summaries and references for original, peer-reviewed (i.e., empirical) literature. Unlike the material offered in the recommended books, articles, and videos section, this literature this section reviews, constitutes original research. It is useful for grounding policies and decisions in science.
The Aurora Institute promotes the growth of CBE across the U.S. by offering resources, blogs, and symposiums to advance this work. The above link goes to the updated, seven-element definition of CBE developed by Levine and Patrick (2019) that has been widely used to anchor CBE.
Hess, Colby, and Joseph (2023) offer a variety of free CBE implementation resources. This link to the "CBE Readiness Tool" provides a pdf template to assess stages of implementation and focus areas for schools adopting CBE. It is useful for identifying where one's classroom/school is in the CBE implementation process.
This link goes to the general resource page offered by Hess et al. offering a variety of other implementation resources.
