In large session classes, assessing for mastery learning can often be more challenging than in smaller classes due to the teacher/student ratio. This online seminar will review the benefits and challenges of assessing for mastery learning and provide practical ways for teachers to implement mastery learning assessments in large session classes where teacher to student ratios have, in the past, rendered such approaches unrealistic.

What are the learning goals?

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Define mastery learning
  • Create clear mastery-based learning outcomes
  • Establish thresholds for desired mastery
  • Design assessments that target competency vs. factual knowledge
  • Analyze potential ways to implement mastery-based assessments in a typical large class

Who Should Attend?

  • Professors and instructors
  • Department chairs
  • Curriculum developers
  • Educational developers
  • Instructional designers

Why You Don’t Want To Miss This!

Mastery learning (sometimes also known as competency-based education) is a curricular approach that focuses on students mastering concepts at their own pace, before they move on to new concepts. While mastery learning is not a new idea, implementing mastery learning in large classes through creative assessment and technological assistance is new.
