Tracking Competency-Based Learning
Competency-based learning frees learners to navigate to mastery in more personalized ways that better communicate the learner’s application of both knowledge and skills.
Headrush makes it easy.
The Power of Task Boards
The Task Board is a simple visual metaphor for collecting, curating, and organizing individual and group activities. Learn how the Task Board makes any learning scenario possible through multi-use task cards and flexible columns.
Headrush and Google
Headrush and Google work well together. Connect your Google account to Headrush, and login with a click. From there, create, re-mix and re-use what is in your Google Drive wherever you need to. Sharing happens automatically.
Credits are the most widely accepted currency when reporting student achievement at the high school level. But the jagged reality of agile learning doesn’t always match the square tracking of credits. Headrush has the solution.
Re-use and Remix
Learn how to use Headrush to re-use and re-mix your projects, expectations and outcomes with learners. Start learners with templates that reinforce your expectations while staying open to change as projects evolve.
Start and Support Student-Led Projects
Student passion projects, assigned projects in a thematic unit, and programs like genius hour: no matter what your learners create, you can manage and support their work and your process in one place, without needing to send a single email.

What is in this video?
Narrative feedback and real-time assessment are both empowering and instructive for learners. Likewise, external audiences heighten authenticity of learning and provide a role for the community to enrich the student experience.
These guests may be community allies, industry experts, or maybe even peers, invited during a project presentation review, a competitive event where outsiders rate students or a technical product/prototype.
Collecting feedback on student work from guest assessors can be challenging and complex.
Headrush simplifies this process by eliminating special logins and instantly serving up rubrics already present on the learner’s work. All this happens right in the regular workflow of modules, assessments, and feedback. Let's see how it works.
On any Module in Headrush, an advisor can invite a guest to provide an assessment for a given learner or a group of learners. The advisor chooses what they’d like the guest to assess, what the learner can see, and an optional welcome message. Easily copy and paste the created link to share with a group of guest assessors. When the guest clicks the link, their personal and private view shows a list of learners to review.
Guests can then review the Learner's work, and assess and provide feedback as requested by the Advisor. Once completed, the Guest assessor will be emailed a copy of their assessment for posterity and confirmation. Headrush will ask guest assessors to verify their identity using an email verification, although this is not required. Advisors will be able to see if the guest has verified their email or not in their response. The Advisor will be notified a guest assessment has been completed and can at any time view the assessment alongside their own. The advisor can also easily track which guests have not started their assessments, and send them a friendly reminder.
If permitted, learners can then view the assessment of guests.
Making it easy to invite guests, simplifying how feedback is gathered, and empowering learners with authentic assessment results are the natural extension of how Headrush facilitates meaningful experiences for learners supported by mentors.
