A Mastery Approach for Large Classes in Introductory Educational Psychology.
Littlejohn, Mary T.
A learning-for-mastery approach, recommended by Bloom and based on key points suggested by Biehler, was used in large lecture sections of undergraduate educational psychology. Quizzes were composed of completion items; one or more alternate forms could be taken until mastery was achieved or grades raised. Students also did short papers on readings or projects chosen by them, in order to add a less convergent dimension of learning and as an additional way of raising grades. Minimum mastery level was a C average on each quiz and two papers. Student evaluation of the approach has been enthusiastically positive. (Author)
