Managing the Proliferation of the Mastery Learning Literature: A Progress Report on the Loyola Clearinghouse on Mastery Learning.
Hymel, Glenn M.
The proliferation of the mastery learning literature over the past decade has acutely intensified the need for the formation of a specific Clearinghouse on Mastery Learning (CML). An attempt at establishing such a clearinghouse has been under way for the past year through the Loyola Center for Educational Improvement, based at Loyola University in New Orleans. Of particular importance regarding the nature, current status, and projected activities of the CML is the provision of (1) an organizational basis for establishing a national/international information management system on mastery learning; (2) a central repository for mastery learning documents; (3) an analysis procedure for delineating the past, current, and future nature and direction of mastery learning efforts; (4) a source of information analysis products such as a comprehensive bibliography and highly specific bibliographies on mastery learning; and (5) an informational network system for individuals and professional organizations involved with mastery learning which would coordinate current efforts in the field with past accomplishments and needed future directions. This paper provides a detailed progress report on the CML since its inception. (Author)
