Mastery in WebAssign builds your students’ confidence with multiple opportunities to practice course topics. Mastery offers students a group of randomized questions where they need to answer a set number correctly to show they’ve mastered the concept and earn credit.
Students gain more question variety, along with optional help tools such as videos, tutorials, and feedback. Plus, you have the flexibility to choose the questions, determine how they’re graded, and review your students’ responses to pinpoint their challenges.
Your students will have a clear path to achieve mastery, defined by you. Students can easily see if they have mastered the skills needed to progress onto more difficult concepts by completing related questions grouped together. And you can support your students along the way by reviewing your students’ responses to each question, to pinpoint their challenges.
Multiple Opportunities for Success
Give your students multiple opportunities to practice course topics, in an environment where it’s okay to make mistakes. Students are offered optional help tools such as videos, tutorials, and feedback to help them build confidence, and if they get stuck, they can skip to a new mastery question set or try a different problem and come back later.
More Control with Customizable Question Sets
Use a pre-built assignment, or create your own Mastery question set, with the ability to pick your own questions and customize question settings and grading to align with your course goals.
