Response From: Bethany Lindsey of Galvanize
Title: Program Director, Seattle
Wednesday, Dec 06 2017

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We really appreciate it and want you to know we are listening. Since we are an educational institution, we value our own lessons -- and so wanted to share how we have learned and grown in the past 9 months to address these issues. 

1. This is truly an immersive experience. We have redesigned the curriculum in such a way that it is challenging to the beginner as well as the students with more experience. We did this with a blended curriculum. Students must all pass check points, and the students with more experience are able to dive deeper into the materials as well.

2. Currently, our instructors each have teaching experience and provide a supportive environment for students. The students seem very happy with our instructors and their knowledge. The latest graduating class rated the instructor knowledge at 85%,  Very Satisfied.

3. Instructors own the learning materials and are able to teach to them. The instructors all have experience with all of the curriculum, so they are able to teach from any point in the course. 

4. Students are placed on performance improvement plans if they are not meeting course expectations. Students are counseled out of the program if they are not the right fit or they can defer to the following cohort if they need more time with the material. Our primary goal is working to set the student up to succeed.

5. We use the Galvanize Standard to report placement information. This information takes 6-8 months to certify, because "placement" is measured at 6 months after graduation. So, the 2016 placement data was released in August 2017.
