District Mastery: Current and Upcoming Functionality

Follow

Schoology is dedicated to building a standards-based grading solution that will help districts achieve their goals with a centralized model for standards and learning objectives. To achieve a true mastery or competency solution, we are building a scalable foundation that is intended to grow over time.

The initial phase of District Mastery is just that - the first phase of a bigger solution. This article outlines the current functionality and what is intended to be released over time as we build out the full District Mastery solution.
