FWIW, special classifiers aren't necessarily the best way for a D class shooter to get out of D class. Many D class shooters are in D class because they haven't yet become consistent, and it's a lot harder to put up 4-6 stages without a mistake in one day than it is to simply take a deep breath and run one classifier a match without a mistake for a couple of months.

I wouldn't worry so much about classification as were she is placing in the matches, is she improving her % of the winner? Finishing at a higher standing? Some people do not classify well, their shooting strengths are in stage breakdown, movement, and not messing up. Classifiers are a decent judge of shooter ability but have a tendency to highlight the static skills; draw, hose, reload, hose some more. Classifier scores are some of the easiest to improve with dry fire; draws, reloads, and transitions. Dry fire practice ten minutes a day can make enormous improvements especially for newer shooters, downside is that dry fire can feel like work. But it is worth it.
Love this response.
I think it's more important to concentrate on improving each time you shoot, rather than just trying to get to C,B,A,M,GM.
At the D level, she's really competing with herself more than with others. Her goal should be to shoot as accurately as possible and make her movements as efficient as possible. Once that happens, the classifiers will fall into line.
