Mastery learning in the zone of proximal development
written by Brianne Gutmann, Gary Gladding, Morten Lundsgaard, and Timothy Stelzer
Mastery-style online homework is used at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in a freshmen preparatory physics course. Its implementation revealed that some content is difficult for students to master, including algebraic kinematics questions. By adding scaffolding for half the students on a level targeting these skills, we saw that these students were able to master the training more often and significantly more quickly than their counterparts with less help, while still outperforming their counterparts on more difficult follow-up levels with less time spent overall. The advantage from the single treatment became diluted as transfer and difficulty increased.
