Term Definition
mastery learning

a term with wide application but most commonly used for an approach drawn from the work of Benjamin Bloom (1913-1999) which concentrates on the learner becoming fully competent and skilled before attempting the next level of complexity. The connotations  of the terms 'master' or 'mastery' make its modern usage rare (see Bloom's taxonomy).
