Scoring Criteria - Mastery-Based Learning

Overview

Mastery-Based Learning requires a means of assessment where students can view learning as a process and use problem-solving strategies to meet or exceed learning expectations. Scoring guides have been implemented into today’s classrooms to give students a better understanding of what is being assessed, what criteria grades are based upon, and what clear and compelling learning targets are addressed. The focus of scoring guides is to monitor and adjust progress rather than just to assess the end result. Scoring criteria are task neutral, are aligned with the cognitive demand in the performance indicators, describe complexity of thinking rather than frequency of performance, and focus on what student can do rather than deficiencies.
