MBI’s Progress Test Belt Stripes

Progress Test Belt Stripes from Merit Badges International

About 80% of students quit because of ‘perceived lack of progress’.

Studies show that the attention span of people in general is becoming shorter and students need more regular proof or confirmation of progress to keep them motivated.

Students need visual signs of progress that’s why we have belts tests every 3, 4 , or in some cases 6 months but for a lot of students this is far too long to go without a sign of progress so they lose interest and quit.

To combat this we have monthly progress tests so that the students are getting confirmation of their progress every month, this increases retention, reduces drop out and helps to grow your school.

Here’s how our progress test system works

We split each belt requirements/curriculum/syllabus into 2, for example:

Yellow belt

At the end of the first month we test the students (during class) on the first half of their belt requirements/curriculum/syllabus (like a mini grading, all the students up in a line)

Month 1 - basic & sparring combination

If they are up to standard they pass their 1st progress test and receive a stripe on their belt.

At the end of the second month we test the students on the second half of their belt requirements/curriculum/syllabus.

Month 2 - Self-defence technique & Kata/Forms/Pooms

Again If they are up to standard they pass their 2nd progress test and receive a second stripe on their belt.

The third month, two weeks before their belt test/gradings we test the students on all 4 of their belt requirements/curriculum/syllabus.

Month 3 - basic & sparring combination, Self-defence technique & Kata/Forms/Pooms

Again If they are up to standard they pass their 3rd progress test (we call it a spotlight test) and they receive a third stripe on their belt. Once they have 3 stripe they are ready for their belt test.

To enhance this system our Progress Test Belt Stripes are a new part of MBI’s program and one of the best tools I have found to increase motivation and retention and turn those "c" students into "b" students. They are a fun, affordable simple and effective tool to use each month.

The students & parents love the brightly coloured, durable plastic stripes and the instructor can easily see at a glance who has 1, 2 or 3 stripes from across the room, ensuring no-one gets left behind. The added bonus is that each stripe has the word ‘PROGRESS’ on confirming for the student (and more importantly the parents) that they are progressing and can see a visual sign of progress every month.

The stripes come 24 on a sheet, ready cut to make it really easy to just peel & stick, the durable plastic stripes look great on any colour belt and are long enough to fit around all belts, they also give your school a far more professional image rather than some random tape.

We use a yellow stripe for 1st progress test, an orange one for 2nd progress test and a green one for the spotlight test.
