The Grid Method is a self-paced, student driven, mastery and standards based educational system that utilizes tiered learning targets and aligned learning tasks to maximize student achievement. Within this system, students follow standards based learning tasks developed by their instructor that scaffold and build understanding of each learning target. Targets themselves are developed and organized as scaffolded levels that increase in depth of knowledge providing opportunities for productive struggle for learners. Formative assessment is utilized at the end of each task to show mastery. Until mastery is achieved, the learner receives multiple attempts to show their knowledge on a given learning task. The learners are supported by differentiation and intervention is provided based on their needs as learners progress. Tasks, targets, and descriptions of activities are organized into a grid system for students to track their progress. The instructor then tracks student progress throughout the process to ensure understanding.
