Affective Outcomes in a Learning for Mastery Setting.
Strasler, Gregg M.
Few studies of mastery learning deal specifically with retention and transfer of learning or emotional outcomes. To determine whether learning for mastery students were better able than students in nonmastery classes to acquire higher academic self-concept scores, pre- and post-test scores on three affective measures were examined for 93 seventh grade students. In the experimental study of 23 class days, the means of the learning for mastery students either increased slightly or remained constant. In contrast, the means of all three affective measures decreased slightly for the nonmastery learning students. Although results revealed no significant differences between the groups, the findings seem to favor the learning for mastery approach. (Author/JAC)
