Mastery Testing and Student Learning: A Meta-Analysis
Journal of Educational Technology Systems Volume 15, Number 3, ISSN 0047-2395
This meta-analysis of 49 comparative studies shows that mastery testing has positive effects on student learning, but the size of effect depends on the stringency of the criterion used and the degree of experimental control. The effects of instructional time, student attitudes, and differences in ability levels are also addressed. (Author/LRW)
