Student Progress and Performance
At most high schools, students move at the same pace, and progress is measured by graded tests. At Quest Forward Academy, students can choose to work at the common classroom pace, or move at their own, appropriate pace.
Testing is done by assessing the student-produced artifacts, and teachers score them on learning, timeliness, effort, and suitability. Parents receive weekly, detailed updates that show which quest their child worked on during the week, which skills they practiced, and the artifacts involved in demonstrating mastery of the material. Quest Forward Academy also provides traditional grade-based transcript for students applying to post-secondary institutions, as needed.
