Abstract Title: Online Mastery-style Homework in a Large Introductory Physics Class
Abstract: In our preparatory kinematics and dynamics course of about 500 students, we replaced traditional immediate feedback homework with mastery-style homework. This mastery mode required students to perfect a set of questions before moving on to the next level of increased difficulty, and implemented narrated animated solutions to provide instructional support, if necessary.

Student behavior within the system and students' resulting performance illuminated both strengths and obstacles of implementation for this type of homework in a large class of struggling students.  Data from the semester-long study will be shown, as well as explained in context as a tool to improve the material and delivery for our next semester of students.
