This pages is about and includes the recommended assessment forms for use as part of the Evaluation and Evolution process within the One Community Education for Life program. The assessment forms are designed to provide an adaptable template for collaborative growth that is applicable to all ages and almost any learning environment. This component of the program is divided into the following learning groups: Pre-K/Elementary, Intermediate/Secondary, and Post Secondary (trade school, etc.).
This page includes examples and downloadable forms for each learning group to assess, evaluate, and provide:

The assessment forms are designed to provide an adaptable template for learner guided evaluations that support collaborative growth applicable to all ages and almost any learning environment. The purpose of learner-guided evaluations is to engage all participants in their own life coaching and human evolution process.
The evaluation form serves as an engine for identifying, pursuing, and evolving passions and raw talents through interdisciplinary, inquiry-based learning. The form and the appropriate questions on it are selected by the person helping guide the learn. The form is then filled out by the learner (and/or by a parent/guardian for younger learners) prior to the bidirectional in person conversation between the Learner and Teacher that allows the Learner to help chart their own path and shape their own educational experiences.
This creates opportunities for the Learner and the Teacher to ask personalized questions and explore strategies to create a means to enhance everyone’s development. It also provides a means to identify and successfully engage all areas of a person’s life that they want to develop. It is designed for Learners of all ages, Teachers in any capacity, Managers and/or Facilitators in any capacity, and interns, understudies, and/or volunteers/employees in any environment.
Through the use of the form and the assessment format, everyone is accountable and the entire educational experience is enhanced. Most importantly, if you are doing it right, it is engaging/fun for everyone.
One Community is about creating positive and permanent global transformation through open source and self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs. The complete Evaluation and Evolution process is our structure for assessing, maintaining, and improving the educational process and experience for both new and veteran members of our team.
The format described here was initially conceived for use in the Education for Life component of One Community. We then developed it for use in any environment where there are Teachers and Learners, Facilitators and Staff, Managers and Teams, etc. Our hope in open sourcing it is to provide a usable tool for replication that also demonstrates and teaches the benefits of two-directional feedback and collaborative learning and work-environment development. In our opinion, doing this provides a path for improving educational and working relationships within both learning and work environments while also improving the learning and growth process for all participants.
Sharing and helping to support and spread ideas like this is directly in alignment with our Purpose and Mission, our Global-transformation Pledge, and Highest Good philosophy for open source creation, sharing, and making a difference in the world.
As stated above, the purpose of this evaluation form is to engage learners in their own life coaching and human evolution process. It allows the Learner/Team Member to enroll in charting their own path and shaping their own educational experiences. It also allows the Teacher/Facilitator to get valuable feedback for their growth process. Criteria for the form:
The primary goal of this Evaluation and Evolution process is to help the learner assess their progress and identify next steps and goals. It is meant to improve the learning and teaching experience for all involved. The form selection and the slection of the specific questions will be led by the Teacher/Facilitator, filled out by the Learner, and discussed face to face in a two-directional conversation designed as a positive growth experience for everyone.
The form and two-directional feedback process that follow it are meant to provide something for:
See the Roles section below for definitions of each of the above.
The recommended (adaptable) assessment forms for use with the Evaluation and Evolution process are GoogleDoc-based so they are easily copyable/transferable/editable and transparent. Adding/removing module components individualizes each person’s form and helps further individualize the learning path too. The forms are also designed to allow for input and participation from a person’s entire learning team (family, friends, teachers, mentors, etc.). The forms can be adapted to be used for:
Here are the Google docs in formats for evaluation for each age:

Q: Are all aspects of this Evaluation and Evolution component necessary?
We consider all aspects listed above as important but how a person or organization chooses to use them is up to that individual or group. To maximize the flexibility and application options, all components are designed to be usable in combinations, as part of the complete model, or as a stand-alone components.
People’s and organizational approaches to discipline are diverse. If disciplinary action is something you or your organization has decided is necessary, our suggestion is to still maintain a positive and Learner-focused approach. This would mean focusing on the Learner’s goals, how their behavior could be changed to help them better achieve their goals, and then guiding the Learner to come up with the best approach for moving forward and any consequences associated with not living up to this self-created path for progress.
Q: What if I have my own evaluation system that I like better, can I use that instead?
Of course! All aspects of the Education for Life program are designed for use in any educational environment and with or without inclusion of any other aspect of the program.
