Mastery Learning: the middle ground between individual tutoring and a lecture

5 Tips: Learn more effectively in class with Mastery Learning

In traditional classrooms, students progress through the class regardless of their level of achievement.  In mastery learning classrooms, students must fully understand (demonstrate mastery of) the material before moving on to the next topic.  Mastery learning is about how students navigate through exercises and assignments.

In the SCSU case, particularly D2L, technique can be applied by creating training, versus assessment D2L quizzes for students and allow unlimited number of takes, but condition the quizzes to allow the student to pass to the next chapter in D2L content only after reaching a certain quiz score.
