BHS Staff is focusing this year's assessment on helping students develop an understanding of their own capabilities and how their efforts can yield improved results.  

For a preview of this kind of approach, please enjoy this TED talk from Carol Dweck sharing her research on "growth mindset."  BHS students are assessed on Agency, a term that we use to describe their growth mindset and their ability to take ownership of their own learning.  Click here to see the rubric that guides student reflection on agency.
