Fractional (or Partial) Credits
Credits. The most common and 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.
Credits need to be recovered when time is lost to circumstances.
Tracking credit through cross-curricular projects is difficult.
And non-traditional, out-of-school learning is lost to the process.
Student opportunities should not be lost to antiquated credit bookkeeping.
Headrush solves this problem with partial or fractional credits tracking through flexible assessment, real-time dashboards, and tailored transcripts.
Learning in Headrush does not need to happen within traditional timetables or structures. Instead, as Modules are created, remixed, and reused, students can be collectively or individually assessed based on the evidence they submit. Assessment can be cross-curricular and fractional based on the evidence demonstrated by a student.
For schools that are competency-based and still need credits, Headrush can directly map competencies to credits, which saves time and spreadsheets, while making clear what earned credit means. As students complete projects, seminars, units, and other learning experiences, credits accumulate. Rules and thresholds can be set up to generate accurate reports.
The result is an always up to date credit dashboard, reports, transcripts, and credit information that can be exported for State Course Code reporting.
All together, Headrush ensures students can be recognized for all that they have learned and done, without the bookkeeping burden.
