A Response to Slavin's Mastery Learning Reconsidered.
Bloom, Benjamin S.
Review of Educational Research, v57 n4 p507-08 Win 1987
A paper by R. E. Slavin is discussed concerning the validity and efficacy of mastery learning techniques. Slavin's pessimistic view of mastery learning, based on a selective set of studies that he examined, is countered by the proposition that much research indicates the necessity of this form of teaching to education.
