Mastery Learning and the Decreasing Variability Hypothesis.
Livingston, Jennifer A.; Gentile, J. Ronald
Journal of Educational Research, v90 n2 p67-74 Nov-Dec 1996
This report results from studies that tested two variations of Bloom's decreasing variability hypothesis using performance on successive units of achievement in four graduate classrooms that used mastery learning procedures. Data do not support the decreasing variability hypothesis; rather, they show no change over time. (SM)
