Malik wasn’t always a celebrity chef.
In high school, he took a private class for Food Safety, where the only exam was the certification exam at the end. He failed the certification exam, but his program had no advice beyond “try again”. He was sure his dreams were dead.
Then his school, which uses Scantron assessments for formative testing in all subjects, started offering a Food Safety exam course. In that course his instructor gave several tests throughout the class. All the test results connected directly back to key elements of the content domain. Malik knew exactly what he needed more study on, and passed the certification with a high score.
