Mastery learning is a method of teaching and learning that assures each student become proficient in a level of predetermined content and skills on a unit of instruction. We believe each student is unique with different interests and talents. While content standards demand equal outcomes, the path to achievement may look different for each student. In a mastery learning setting, students are given specific feedback about their learning progress, as well as learning support as needed, at regular intervals throughout the instructional period. Michigan’s High School Content Expectations guide the planning of the instructional and assessment standards for all courses at Skyline High School. The goal in each of these courses is for all students to achieve mastery of these State standards.
