The College Foundation Course was designed so that students stop at certain points and get feedback on drafts they create (using the course templates). This feedback accelerates their learning process and gives them an opportunity to try-and-learn multiple times in the course and before they get in front of judges or investors.
There are two ways (methods) for students to get that feedback, and the class instructor decides which is best for their situation:
1) Peer feedback. This requires very little time from the instructor and works well in large class sizes.
2) Instructor feedback. The students submit their drafts to the instructor (like homework) for review and feedback.
For instructors who use method #2 above (instructor feedback), they have the option of scoring the student entrepreneurs on learning objectives to create a student improvement score. The student scores can be averaged to create an improvement score for the program.
The program improvement score can be used not only to show the quantitative success of the education program and differentiate it from others, but also:
