The Mastery Transcript Consortium (MTC) is a group of independent -- and soon public -- schools organized around the development and dissemination of an alternative model of assessment, crediting, and transcript design. Over the next decade, the MTC hopes to change the relationship between preparation for college/career and college admissions for the betterment of students. A dues-based organization with over 185 member schools, the MTC was awarded a $2 million matching grant by the Edward E. Ford Foundation in April 2017.
While the Mastery Transcript product itself is still in the design stage, the Consortium has quickly filled with leading schools intent on shaping a more humane, effective, and meaningful tool for inspiring learning to mastery in students and then communicating it cleanly to colleges and universities.
