Mastery-based Learning Assessments for High Schoolers

Celebrate the journey as well as the outcome.

The Polygence Learning Record documents the personal growth and upskilling that occurs while you're working toward your project outcome.

If you’ve ever felt like traditional transcripts miss the mark in capturing what truly makes a student stand out, you’re not alone.

For years, educators, parents and students have wished for a way to show admissions the bigger picture, one that takes a more well-rounded view of student achievement.

We’re thrilled to partner with an organization committed to helping students demonstrate who they are as learners, community members and individuals — The Mastery Transcript Consortium.

Students who complete the Polygence Core 1:1 Research Program can now add a certified MTC Learning Record to their program.

So what IS the MTC Learning Record?

The Polygence MTC Learning Record documents the academic and personal growth that students achieve through working on their Polygence projects.
