Scratch

Learn about our Scratch course levels and competencies learned at each level. We developed a learning progression for programming with Scratch. Our Scratch courses are built on five course levels:

  1. Introductory Level 
  2. Junior Coder Level 1 
  3. Junior Coder Level 2 
  4. Intermediate Coder Level 1
  5. Intermediate Coder Level 2
  6. Advanced Coder Level 1
  7. Advanced Coder Level 2

Each course level focuses on achieving a set of competencies. Students discover the new competencies. They may take 1 or 2 terms to explore their new skills in various contexts and consolidate them in that course level. Afterwards they are able to proceed to the next level to discover, explore and consolidate new competencies.
