Time is the Variable

  • Learners advance (progression) to the next Performance Level in a content area once proficiency or better has been achieved and validated.  There are no traditional grade levels.
  • Progression can occur at any point during the course of the year for any content area.
  • At the beginning of the traditional school year, learners resume their learning at the point where they left off the previous year (continuous flow). There is no social promotion.
  • Learners are typically in different Performance Levels for different content areas.
  • Multiage classrooms are the norm not the exception.
