The P-20 Exemplars represent how each competency within each grade
band can be combined with core content standards, skills, and dispositions
to provide educators ideas for how to leverage their content areas to help
students achieve the vision of the Portrait of a Graduate. Competencies are
intended to be integrated into each grade level and content area to support
learners as they master the essential knowledge and skills to succeed and
lead in an ever-changing world.
The P-20 Competencies are aligned with Utah's Portrait of a Graduate and defnes the competencies into grade bands that vertically align as learners build knowledge, skills, and dispositions from Pre-K through post-secondary.
The P-20 Rubrics provide a model for creating intentional learning opportunities for students in alignment with the Utah Portrait of a Graduate. For each competency, the rubrics function as learning progressions through the continuum from Pre-K through post-secondary. The rubrics support student agency and self-assessment of their current application of knowledge and skills. The model rubrics are intended to be adapted by local communities to align with their LEA and school instruction. By having models available, the state promotes local implementation and supports access to the Utah Portrait of a Graduate for all stakeholders in PreK-12 education.
