Standards and Mastery Learning
Aligning Teaching and Assessment So All Children Can Learn



January 2003 | 208 pages | Corwin
`The book makes a distinct contribution to the field. The integration of standards and mastery learning is important if standards, once established, are to be achieved by large numbers of students. I think it is timely, well organized, contains real-life examples, and is well written' - Lorin Anderson, Carolina Distinguished Professor of Education, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina

There is a strong connection between the current standards movement and the philosophy of mastery learning. Unfortunately, few schools have adopted the tenets of mastery learning, a major lapse, because mastery learning is supported by a large body of research--a body of research that is lacking for standards. By studying the lessons of mastery learning--both good and bad--educators will have the tools to successfully implement standards in the classroom and school.

"I am quite enthusiastic about this book. As far as I know, no one has brought the perspective of mastery learning to the considerable dialogue about standards even though the connection is an obvious one. These authors clearly know mastery learning and will add greatly to the standards movement."

Cardinal Stritch University

"The book makes a distinct contribution to the field. The integration of standards and mastery learning is important if standards, once established, are to be achieved by large numbers of students. I think it is timely, well organized, contains real-life examples, and is well written."

"This is one of the best books I have read on this topic. I can't wait for it to be published so that I can give copies to each of the teachers at my school."

RoseAnne Vojtek, Principal
Ivy Drive Elementary School, Bristol, CT

"In my opinion, this book would be excellent in a curriculum and instruction class in teacher education programs either at the graduate or certification level. It would also be good for school administrators researching successful methods in the area of standards achievement."
