Grades at UA Maker provide precise, actionable feedback about students’ ability to master the design thinking process, content knowledge and the skills articulated in the Common Core Standards.

Since the rapidly changing workplace calls for our future Makers to apply what they know and are able to do in novel situations and with independence, students at UA Maker have demonstrated mastery when they show their understanding on their own, across time and situations. At UA Maker, when you demonstrate your understanding once, you are proficient. When you show your understanding repeatedly, you have mastered a skill.

Thus, at UA Maker, Mastery means being able to demonstrate repeated proficiency of a particular process, content or skill as measured by different types of assessments that ask students to apply what they know in different ways. Students will have the opportunity to learn content and skills in subject area challenge classes, whole school design challenges, and through asynchronous work that they complete at their own pace, allowing for acceleration or recuperation, depending on the student’s need.
