  5. 5. Learning Methods Mastery Learning: All can learn, but each has a different way and different rate of learning Under favorable conditions, individual differences diminish Uncorrected learning errors are responsible for most learning difficulties. Time to learn must be adjusted to fit aptitude Students must demonstrate mastery on unit exams, typically 80%, before moving on to new material. Summative Assessment Typical examinations where a student is graded for right/wrong answers Formative Assessment Strength/weaknesses are identified Grading is not done. Instead, improvement areas are identified Adaptive Testing In a test, the difficulty level of the next question adjusts according to the response to the previous question. 5
