Mapping your Journey: Grow, Progress, Share

Mastery Transcript Consortium 2023 Symposium

More than likely, you have used a GPS to help you navigate somewhere for the first time. Accessing step-by-step directions is so ubiquitous as to be taken for granted, but it remains a key support for nascent travelers. At our 2023 Symposium, you will have the opportunity to utilize tools, exchange user stories, and learn more about mapping
your route to competency-based learning.


Grow: MTC Grow and the embedded Journey to Mastery Learning (JML) continues to be a uniquely valuable tool for members identifying strategic goals and next steps. Breakout sessions are aligned with JML competencies so that you can tailor your experience to your organization's priorities.

Progress: We are excited to unveil a competency-based Progress Report. Whether you are just beginning to track competencies or already doing so schoolwide, this is a critical tool for giving high quality, actionable feedback to learners and snapshots of progress to parents, caregivers, and educators.

Share: You will have the opportunity to hear from multiple members on their innovative practices, as well as from Mastery Transcript sending schools and schools who sent MTC Learning Records (MLRs) for the first time in 2022-23. A breakout session has been curated for schools interested in starting an MLR pilot to begin to share evidence of their learners' achievements.
