Feedback on our latest blueprint
Revised impact map
We want feedback on our impact map.

Please let us know if this appears to be a complete set of goals for our learning environment. Thx!
We are looking for feedback on our new expert concept map.
This is a critique of something
We want feedback on our assessments based on our performance objectives and on the idea that assessments should resemble badges
We want feedback on our learning goals
We need some feedback on the first version of our prototype
Please give us feedback on our student engineer expert model.
we want feedback on our expert model and goals
We redirected our project so our expert concept map is no longer relevant. Thus, the best use of this critique is talking about our new direction and our learning goals.
