Mastery-based Education and the Learning Mastery Gradebook

As a concept, mastery-based education is nearly a century old and has been championed in modern times by the likes of Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy. While traditional education still prevails in the classroom, there is growing interest in instituting mastery-based (or formative learning) practises throughout the country. Canvas recently introduced the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which gives teachers the option to view students’ learning based on standards rather than grades. This allows teachers to monitor students’ progress in mastering specific learning objectives and to quickly identify students who need additional help. This webinar will cover: how mastery learning is being implemented in the classroom, why learning outcomes are important, how to get started with mastery learning, and about Canvas' Learning Mastery Gradebook now and in the future.
