Open Access Graduate Research Paper
According to Bloom (1968), mastery learning is a flexible, adaptive approach to instruction in which individual learning styles and abilities are considered in the design or the instructional units. Mastery learning capitalizes on the notion that almost all children can learn under prescribed conditions. Mastery learning approaches assume that virtually all students can master a great deal or what they are taught in school if the "instruction is approached systematically, if students are helped when and where they have learning difficulties, if they are given sufficient time to achieve mastery, and if there is some clear criterion of what constitutes mastery" (Block, 1977, p. 6).
