A snapshot of statewide implementation of proficiency-based education

Across the five Guiding Principles Maine school administrative units are making progress in providing students opportunity to demonstrate proficiency, and across the content areas, SAUs have made more progress on aligning curriculum and summative assessments to the standards than in reporting proficiency.  The data reveals that current implementation work in Maine SAUs most often focuses on shifts in instructional practice.

The Maine Department of Education has prepared a snapshot to show this proficiency-based implementation. Aggregated results from the 2014-15 Progress Report: Implementing Proficiency-based learning and proficiency-based diplomas indicates significant progress toward the implementation of proficiency-based diplomas.
