MTC Mastery Transcript®

Working with member schools, the MTC has co-designed and built a software platform that schools use to publish Mastery Transcripts for their high school students and deliver these transcripts securely to college admissions readers and/or employers.

Key Features of the MTC Mastery Transcript®

Design Principles


What makes the Mastery Transcript different? How does it help learners and readers alike?

No Grades/GPA

MTC Schools don’t reduce learners to single numbers, but they do hold them to high standards. When learners master critical skills and content, they earn “Mastery Credits”, which combine to create a clear, succinct visualization of each learner’s unique strengths.

Flexible, but Consistent

Mastery Credits are defined and certified by member schools; MTC does not mandate a set of skills or competencies. At the same time, we provide a consistent format so that readers can review our transcript with speed and accuracy.

Compact, but Layered

As a digital and interactive document, the Mastery Transcript provides a compact “top layer” that can be quickly scanned, with additional information layered beneath for readers who want to dive deeper into a learner’s credentials.

Student-Centric, but Contextual

Learners own their own profile page, and can choose to feature particular projects and achievements. But transcript remains a school record, and contains information to help readers understand the learner’s achievements in the context of their school and cohort.

Equitable

A transcript created to serve students from all backgrounds, and to support them in a variety of post-high school goals, whether that be admissions to a selective four-year university, placement at a community college, or entry into the workforce.

Mastery Transcripts Enable Mastery Learning

The Mastery Transcript’s power is not only in what it communicates, but also in what it enables: learning that is deeply personalized, student driven, based in authentic engagement, and designed to educate the “whole student.” Key benefits are:
