If you or your school is using MindTap for Milady Standard Cosmetology, 13th Edition, you might have noticed a new assessment plank added to the bottom of the main Learning Path. This feature is called the Procedural Tracker. The tracker provides the capability to digitally record and grade practical procedures your students have performed in class or in the student salon. The Procedural Tracker provides real-time totals for all procedures completed so that students and instructors always know their progress as they work toward their curriculum requirements.
Students will find procedures conveniently grouped by categories in the drop-down menu (Cleaning & Disinfecting, General, Hair, Makeup, Nails, Shaving, and Skin) and they can select the procedure they have completed. In addition, they may add an image. Instructors can then open the Procedure Tracker gradebook located on the MindTap sidebar/app dock to review, supply feedback and grade each procedure.
