Most courses are implicitly built upon a system of minimizing point losses, thereby placing an emphasis on what students do NOT know. Envision a system that instead puts the focus on demonstrated mastery of what students DO know. This presentation will share a positive point accrual system that has evolved into a very successful pedagogical approach adopted in various-sized classrooms. It is a particularly effective approach for very large classrooms (1000+) where individual student needs and scheduling can make a one-size-fits-all syllabus very impractical. This presentation shares a broad range of ideas for student demonstrations of mastery and work with participants to explore how this approach can be adapted to their particular domain and course characteristics.
