Use definition of global competence to produce a graduate profile.
The GPS establishes a continues learning cycle within schools that produces college ready and globally competent graduates. The GPS enables teachers to collaboratively review students ’ work in relation to the assessment criteria, and to collectively learn from analyzing the data how to refine and improve their instructional practices. In turn, teachers use formative and summative assessment and discussion of students ’ progress to enable students to refine and improve their performance. The GPS provides a reliable and valid system for assessing the quality of student work in relation to commonly held criteria for success for teachers and school leaders within each ISSN school and across the multi-state network. As such, the GPS supports opportunities for network wide organizational learning in support of improved practice.

A System to Produce College Ready, Globally Competent Graduates International Studies Schools Network (ISSN) DesignA school design that fosters learning for global competence and college readiness across school culture, governance, partnerships, professional development, and curriculum, assessment, and instruction in over 25 schools across the country. Graduation Performance System (GPS) A performance-based assessment system implemented in ISSN schools that drives the continuous improvement of teacher instruction and student performance towards college readiness and global competence. Graduate Profile Upon graduation, ISSN students are: •Ready for college and career •Globally competent, with the knowledge and skills required for success in the global era
Graduation Performance SystemA process or approach to planning and instruction that leads tothe production of student work through performance-basedlearning.This student work can be assessed in relation to a set ofperformance outcomes and rubrics that demonstrate collegereadiness and global competence.The performance outcomes are designed for: • 6 core subject areas • Interdisciplinary coursework • Alignment to Common Core/State Standards
Performance OutcomesInvestigate the World: Generate Global Knowledge Recognize Perspectives: Apply Cross Cultural Knowledge Take Action: Enact Global Solutions Communicate Ideas: Connect and Collaborate Across Boundaries
