Scheduling and Reporting in a Personalized Competency-Based System
Gain practical guidance for scheduling and reporting in a personalized competency-based system. Both scheduling and reporting in a personalized competency-based system can look very different from current practices. Answer common questions, such as How we do make initial placements for students? Can a school still use grade levels in a personalized competency-based system? Isn’t this system just a new form of tracking students? This workshop will help you work within your current system by making tweaks to the schedule or completely rethinking the traditional schedule.
Participants will also examine various approaches for reporting student progress using performance levels or traditional courses and grade levels. This workshop provides numerous real-world examples and practical guidance for shifting from a traditional to a competency-based system.Request workshop
