"The creation of I Can Statements is one of many ways to reflect a commitment to user-centered design.
I Can Statements are not critical for year one. They can be developed at any time, once your competencies have been defined and your performance level descriptors completed. When crafting I Can Statements, consider how you might refine the language of a performance descriptor to make it more accessible to students, and from the perspective of a student."
