WELCOME TO MARZANO ACADEMIES
Marzano Academies works in partnership, with all types of schools, to help school leaders and teachers create a competency-based education system. Our team members train teachers on competency-based education components, help teachers deploy a competency-based, student data management system and provide up-to-date research products on best teaching and assessment practices. The Marzano Academies’ team, from start-to-finish, guides a school from traditional educational practices to developing a personalized, student-centered, competency-based system.
Competency-Based Education is a system of instruction where students advance to higher-levels of learning when they demonstrate mastery of concepts and skills regardless of time, place, or pace (Foundation for Excellence in Education).
The guiding principles are:
- Students advance upon demonstrated mastery.
- Competencies include explicit, measurable, transferable learning objectives that empower students.
- Assessment is meaningful and a positive learning experience for students.
- Students receive rapid, differentiated support based on their individual learning needs.
