Mastery Checking is a teaching strategy.
Teaching assistant in Universita della Svizzera italiana. Here a normal course takes a midterm and a final exam.
What is mastery check anyway?
You evaluate by skills.
Or why Mastery Checking is not the way to teach.
To many checkings can be a problem for the student.
Anyway, it is NOT a technique to teach, but a technique to evaluate.
The students do not know how to take exams.
this is a big problem. realization is different than thinking?
What do I propose?
Instead of having only midterm and final exams, have more than two. having four to six exams in a subject seems plausible.
Let the students “defend” the exam if they are “almost there”.
