• Diagnostic Entry

    Assessment of a learner’s current knowledge and ability to demonstrate a skill prior to beginning learning.

  • Clear Learning Objectives

    Key performance metrics that a learner is aware of that they will be measured on during and post learning.

  • Practice Engagement

    Practice that is interactive and responsive to a learner’s demonstration of knowledge and/or skill.

  • Continued Practice

    Practice that is continued and tailored per learner that can vary in both time and number of attempts to reach or exceed a passing standard.

  • Minimum Passing Standard

    A clearly defined standard for knowledge and/or skill that learners need to demonstrate for proficiency.

  • Deliberate Practice

    Activities specifically designed to improve a learner’s current level of performance with objected and directed feedback on how to do so.
