Week 4: Teaching & Grading for Mastery



Our goal this week is to define mastery-based assessment, and plan to implement it.





The Process of Mastery


As you develop policies and procedures, consider:


  • Efficiency: How can you see, quickly, that student work shows understanding?

  • Avoiding Bottlenecks: What will students do while they wait for your help?

  • Grading: What do you actually need to grade, and how will you do it?

    • Must-Do’s 80%, Should-Do’s 90%, Aspire-to-Do’s 100%

    • Must-Do’s 100%, Should-Do’s/Aspire-to-Do’s extra credit
