The Mastery Learning System
Our students are expected to master Bio-Med Science Academy’s core curriculum concepts. If this mastery is not achieved in the first attempt, a student will be given additional time and remediation if needed. Each student must master a course in order to progress to the next course.
The Learning Management and Grade Book System
BMSA tracks a student’s course mastery progress using the web-based program, Canvas. Canvas is also designed to be a house for coursework and communications. The program is accessible 24 hours a day.
Mastery Grading: Bio-Med Science Academy Mastery Scale
When a school transcript needs to be generated for external purposes, the Academy uses this language key with regard to grades:
- “High Performing” (A)
- “Mastery” (B)
- “Limited Mastery” (C)
- “Not Mastered” (D/F)
