All Learners Have a Story, Help Them Tell It


1EdTech members are revolutionizing how learners capture their achievements and competencies beyond the traditional transcript to help each student tell their story. They do this by leveraging digital microcredentials, and learner-owned lifelong achievement records developed and supported by the 1EdTech community.

Mastery Transcript Consortium

Mastery Transcript Consortium is a coalition of forward-looking schools that believe all children are capable of learning and that it's our job as educators to design systems that ensure they do. 

They also see traditional grading systems as a barrier to learning, which is why they're partnering with 1EdTech to create open badges and comprehensive learner records to help learners show what they know and can do outside of those traditional systems.

Mastery Transcript Consortium believes by showing it can work, more educators and lawmakers will be ready to embrace it.

If you really want a new system to be equitable, it needs to be scalable. It has to be available everywhere, not just in boutique-style schools on the edges. 1EdTech brings that scalability and network effect to this work.

When 1EdTech vets our technologies and displays them through the TrustEd Apps Management Suite in a consumer reports-type of format, it gives customers confidence in what we’re creating. It not only creates a sense of pride but also a sense that we’re doing the right things in the right way.
