9:30 a.m. ILC, room 315. In many courses, students accumulate points and they do well enough on enough of the content to pass the course. But it can also be the case that the subjects they did well enough to pass are not really the most important components of the course. The idea behind Mastery-Based Learning (and related ideas: Standards Based Grading, Competency-based education, and Specifications Grading) is that the instructor identifies the core ideas that students must master to pass the course and structures the course and its grading scheme toward the goal of mastery. This introductory workshop will invite participants to explore the basic ideas behind the Mastery-Based Learning approach and to consider how such an approach might be structured in their classes.
