Evaluating curriculum through longitudinal study
Sustainable result takes time to cultivate and refine, that’s why we stay with you after the initial implementation of your STEAM programme to analyse the efficacy of the curriculum and find room to tinker and improve to reach better results. At Lifelong Labs, we look beyond mere written exam scores to determine success, because in the real world and in the job market performing well on school exams means little compared to deliverable 21st-century skills. Basing measurements of students’ success on both mastery of content as well as the effort and attitude in which students exhibit towards learning is a more holistic way to structure feedback in order to highlight strengths and weaknesses of students in a diverse classroom.
Our assessment framework, backed by the latest research in Ed-Tech, focuses on instilling in students the following 21st-century skills:
Innovative thinking and curiosity for learning, including critical thinking, teamwork, creativity, and effective communication
Technology know-how and information media, including ability to communicate information using digital media technologies
Marketable life skills, including adaptability, flexibility, open attitude towards lifelong learning, and ability to process feedback
Competency around STEAM subject areas

Your school receives an array of customised tools to track performance over an extended period of time so that you can see measurable results with your new STEAM curriculum. Sample methods we use include:
