Certification is required to ensure reliability and validity.
There are three steps to MEFS certification:
Step 0. Enroll in our Learning Portal: publicmontessori.learnupon.com/users/sign_in
Attend MEFS training online or live, and be marked “present” in the Learning Portal.
1) MEFS Quiz: Take the brief 10-question MEFS quiz in the Learning Portal.
2) Practice: After you pass the quiz, Reflection Sciences will send you your personal login credentials. Use these credentials to practice giving the MEFS five times, preferably with a real child. The child's last name should be recorded as "practice" and will not count as one of your licenses. Please create only ONE practice child. Upload to “My Assignments” in the Learning Portal.
3) Video, MEFS POINT PERSON ONLY: One person from each school, the "MEFS point person," should record a video of themselves giving the MEFS to a child (or an adult if a child is not available). Take the child through at least one full level. Upload to “My Assignments” in the Learning Portal.
Pending completion, you will receive a certificate of completion that you can print and that is valid for 365 days.
