Progress against one's own potential is a better measure of success than accomplishment alone in relation to other children in a class. Nurture considers it more important that a child puts in his / her best always and makes the maximum possible progress than that she is discouraged by relative comparisons with peers. This process ensures that a) children understand their own strengths against goals, b) with their personal roadmaps to success that emphasize strengths, they become effective partners in their learning process, and c) every child feels empowered whether at the bottom or top of a class in a subject and begins to compete with himself / herself.
Information from the surveys is used as feedback in the in planning and delivery of lessons and in the enrichment or remedial measures that are taken for the individual child. A teacher in Nurture is gauged by the progress or improvement of his / her students.
