The Successful Learner Trait Framework prioritizes competency based education and is used for teaching, assessment, and reporting. The philosophical foundation of the Successful Learner Trait Framework recognizes students’ success as a product of how-they-apply themselves, rather than what-they-know. Whether students in classrooms or adults in life, how-we-apply-ourselves to challenge, setbacks, or circumstance is the true determinant of success. Content knowledge is useful; how we apply what we know is critical. The use of the Framework is based upon a key shift: prioritizing competencies. We do this by deliberately using curriculum content as the context in which to explicitly teach students what leads to success … subtle, yet powerful shift. Below are the 8 traits that make up the Successful Learner Framework. Both the Full text and short versions are shown in both French and English.
