The Mastery Transcript Consortium (MTC) is a collective of high schools organized around the development and dissemination of an alternative model of assessment, crediting and transcript generation. This model calls for students to demonstrate a mastery of skills, knowledge and habits of mind by presenting evidence that is then assessed against an institutionally specific standard of mastery.

Join MTC Interim Executive Director Patricia Russell for a lively discussion of student assessment and the college admissions process. Find out how MTC member schools are working together to reconsider their programs and the college admissions process to meet the needs of their current students.
