An Interview with Mastery Portfolio

 

Posted August 31, 2022 on Advancement Courses Blog

Mastery Portfolio is an assessment software with a lot of humanity behind it. We’re curious about the genesis of the idea. What unique problems does this tool seek to solve?

The founding team were full-time classroom teachers struggling to paint the picture of progress for the families we serve.

We got on sales calls with all kinds of online standards-based gradebooks to throw money at the tool of our choosing, and we couldn’t find one that was truly philosophy-aligned and focused more on goals, feedback, and progress and less about ranking and sorting students with points and averages. We built our own prototype of our ideal tool, and it was so well-liked among our colleagues that we decided to start a company to offer it to other schools.

We are truly in the business of empowering students and teachers to show growth in a variety of areas, making it easier to set goals, track them, advocate for help along the way, and celebrate progress as they go.

Now, Mastery Portfolio is an equitable assessment design firm that partners with schools to holistically bring their vision for innovative, responsible, equitable educational outcomes to life for their community.

Sometimes that looks like implementing standards-based grading, sometimes it’s designing career and technical education pathways, and sometimes it’s building competency-based programs—if you can envision it, we can help you implement it.
