Can CDM replace current differentiated pathways for advanced students?
No. CDM should not replace current compacted pathways for groups of students. CDM should not be an additional requirement to determine who will work at a faster rate within the classroom. CDM is meant for individual students who need content replacement and subject acceleration clearly, without any learning of the content in the school setting.
For example. It should not be used for students who are curriculum compacting Grade 6, 7, 8 Math in two years to access Math 1 in Grade 8?
