Beyond 8 digital portfolios serve as a model of our assessment. Learners document their journeys as presentations or writings of their learning opportunities and experiences, with specific focus on reflections. This method has shown to be a more accurate representation of learning than the commonplace standardized testing.
We assess our learners based on other parameters such as their successful participation in the growth mindset program and their abilities to apply acquired skills in internships and other areas of participation.
Ikigai means 'a reason for being’. At Beyond 8, learners discover the key skill of self-direction and identify their intrinsic motivating factors. We are certain that through their Beyond 8 years, they will get closer to their IKIGAI and discover their reason for being and how to lead fulfilling lives.
Fulfilling lives normally includes a thriving career.
