In Demonstrating Student Mastery with Digital Badges and Portfolios, David Niguidula shows how students can meet standards and express their individuality through digital badges and portfolios. Building off an essential question—What do schools want their students to know and be able to do?—he then shows how schools can implement a proficiency-based approach to student learning that has been successfully field-tested in districts across the United States.
