Promoted students will demonstrate proficiency in the material outlined in the Module 1 Learning Goals.
You will complete four projects throughout Module 1, each of which will be assessed according to a rubric. A passing project will “Meet Expectations” (per the rubric) for most categories. You must submit every project to be eligible for promotion.
- Week 1-2: Solo Project #1
- The Solo Project is evaluated, but does not count toward promotion
- Week 2-3: Solo Project #2
- Week 3-4: Paired Project
- You must pass EITHER the Paired Project OR Solo Project #2
- Week 5-6: Group Project
- You must pass the Final Project
- No rubric category can score Below Expectations
Assessments and Independent Challenges
You will complete two assessments and three weekly Independent Challenges in Module 1, each of which will be assesed on a scale of Below Expectations, Approaching Expectations, Meets Expectations, and Exceeds Expectations. Meets Expectations is considered a passing score.
- Mid Module Assessment (aka “Mid Mod”)
- The Mid Mod is evaluated, but does not count toward promotion
- Final Independent Challenge (aka “Final IC”, Week 6)
In order to be promoted to Module 2:
- You must earn a Meets Expectations on the Week 6 Final IC to be promoted to Module 2. Students who do not will be offered a re-take.
- Weekly Independent Challenges (ICs)
- Weeks 2, 4, 5 (aka “Week 2 IC”, “Week 4 IC”, etc.)
- The weekly IC’s are evaluated, but do not count toward promotion. They are practice for the final Week 6 IC.
Promoted students will have attended and actively engaged in all PD sessions. They will present a polished and well thought-out answer to “Tell me about yourself”, something that instruction and feedback will be given on during the live sessions.
Students will complete a Portfolio, and participate in a Portfolio Review. Instructions for the Portfolio can be found here.
