May be a single event or a series of sequential events. CAS gives students a chance to explore passions, develop skills, take risks, lead projects, collaborate with others, persevere, evaluate choices, learn responsibility, make ethical decisions, and sometimes to fail and forge on. Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) It is a journey of discovery of self and others. It is individualized according to student interests, skills, values and background. It is not formally assessed. However, students reflect on their CAS experiences as part of the DP, and provide evidence of achieving the seven learning outcomes for CAS: https://casatnist.weebly.com/uploads/2/7/3/5/27350967/lle
