… while also providing benchmarks to educators!
Learning outcomes just got reinforcements!
Summative assessments have arrived, but in true Find Your Grind style. Every unit is now equipped with a Summative Assessment badge that will motivate students to achieve, while they demonstrate their competence along the way!
These new assessments provide educators with a unit benchmark that can be easily seen on the Unit Student Summary as shown in the image below.
And of course, we have built the summative assessments so that every question is tied to a learning outcome, reinforcing the core components of the Find Your Grind approach.
Oh, and did we mention that the students will like them too. This isn’t just another test!
Engaging Students and Promoting Agency
With built-in flexibility and motivating students to be their own agents of change, they will be given the option to retake any assessment. Students can also see assessment feedback immediately, enabling them to be inquisitive about the topics that they didn’t get quite right, and then providing them with a path to apply their learning immediately.
Transparency and Flexibility for Educators
While promoting growth opportunities for students, our system retains a record of every summative assessment attempt, per student, so that educators can easily use these grades as they see fit.
Summing It Up
Find Your Grind’s framework for outcomes-based learning drives the learning of content and its impact through experiences and self-reflection. It is designed to help guide learners to create opportunities for themselves in their lives and in the world of work. Our curriculum engages learners by providing relevance through self-discovery concepts and career exploration and now provides even more comprehensive coverage with summative data to reinforce it.
This new feature is only available in new classes created today and after. Be sure to create a new class to check it out!

Lifestyles sit at the core of the Find Your Grind experience and serve as the base for setting up personalized learning activities for students as they progress through the curriculum. However, lifestyles aren’t a topic that many adults, let alone students, are generally familiar with or have even given much thought to. Since the lifestyle-first approach is key to getting students to start their own journey, and internalize the concepts as they go, we have released a new feature that brings lifestyles to life!
After completing the Find Your Grind Lifestyle Assessment (found in the initial ‘The Journey STARTS HERE’ unit), students will discover a video that speaks directly to what their lifestyle results mean to them.
They will be inspired to continue their journey of self-discovery and empowerment, and will start digging deeper into their lifestyle matches by clicking on any of their matched Lifestyles directly in the video. Check out this amazing new feature below — feeding personalized, inspirational content to each student, available now!
Educators are able to view their students’ personalized videos by going to the ‘People’ tab and selecting a student. The video will be available on the students’ portfolio page.
