This progress and success has exceeded my expectations and could have not been accomplished without the incredible engagement of counselors, advisors, staff, and especially learners from our fourteen high schools that are using Mastery Transcripts. Their feedback has provided invaluable learnings and influenced key enhancements to the Mastery Transcript design and resources. In our two years of working with sending schools, they have expressed significant satisfaction with the transcript and post-secondary options for their learners.
On the receiving end, colleges and universities have shared an overwhelming openness and desire to learn more about learners and their school communities. The Mastery Transcript, including its embedded school profile, has been instrumental in highlighting learner stories. It provides admission officers with new insights into the accomplishments and passions of their applicants, along with a better understanding of sending high schools’ identities through their credit architecture. In an admissions year without many traditional college admission metrics such as test scores, the Mastery Transcript has given admission offices an opportunity to look more deeply into the many facets of learners and better match applicants to the mission and vision of their institutions.
We look forward to learning more about the opportunities, challenges and current limitations, and finding even more mutual pathways to fully support learners throughout the entire search, application and enrollment process.
