Collecting data on WBL is an essential part of being able to measure impact and assess equity. Having WBL data is also a powerful tool you can use to identify areas for growth and to build a culture of continuous improvement in WBL within your academy and/or district as well as your Advisory Board, local industry and community partners. Finally, the data helps you tell the story of the success and growth of your students and the role your WBL program had in achieving that.
NAF has developed two tools: the WBL Participation Tracker and Reflection Form. Each tool has its own unique features but they work together to provide schools with a holistic view of student-level participation in WBL and the collective impact it’s having on students.
