Systems of encourage / Achievements


The above image is a photo which I took at my little brother’s Kumon Center. It’s a chart that shows the students’ progress , however it does so in a way as an achievement system that encourages the students to work hard or continue to do so. The two columns on the left display if the student is working at a bronze,silver, or gold level – with bronze being 1 grade level higher, silver being 2 grade levels higher, and gold being 3 grade levels higher. The two columns on the right show the various milestones – such as whether they have reached C level before grade 3. The columns to the left edge show the number of years they have been a Kumon member and whether or not they are a “rising star”, meaning that they are on their way to earning a medal.
Finally the column to the very left is their current grade.
