Proficiency-Based Learning


As required by Maine statute, students in Maine will graduate based on demonstrated mastery of the State's rigorous learning standards.

Proficiency-based learning is one approach a growing number of Maine schools are adopting to ensure that their students graduate from high school with the skills they need for success in college, careers and civic life.

Proficiency-based learning can take a variety of forms.

At its heart, though, a proficiency-based system makes learning driven by rigorous standards the constant and time the variable.

Students learn differently and at different speeds. Accordingly, proficiency-based learning allows students flexibility to learn in ways that engage them and allows them choice in how they demonstrate what they've learned.
