Mastery Learning in Physical Education.
Annarino, Anthony
This paper discusses the design of a physical education curriculum to be used in advanced secondary physical education programs and in university basic instructional programs; the design is based on the premise of mastery learning and employs programed instructional techniques. The effective implementation of a mastery learning model necessitates changes in traditional developmental procedures, instructional strategies, and curriculum design. Changes in developmental procedures must include development of psychomotor and cognitive criterion-reference competencies for every learning unit, identification of competencies to be measured for formative and summative evaluation, design of individualized instructional materials for each learning unit consisting of a systematic and progressive series of psychomotor and cognitive tasks, and selection of psychomotor and cognitive tests for pre-entry assessment, formative evaluation, and summative evaluation. Changes in instructional strategies and curriculum design primarily involve providing thorough orientation for students and instructors, setting objectives, and evaluating the system. The number and types of activities, the proficiency levels, and the evaluation procedures are determined by the philosophy and objectives of a school and department. (Included are two program designs which would permit the implementation of mastery learning instructional strategies.) (DMT)
