Mastery Based Grading

In this class we will encourage you to have a growth mindset:

To encourage this positive growth mindset, we’re going to try something new called “Mastery-Based Grading”. Basically, we’re going to move away from the typical calculus-class model in which there are a few high-stakes, do-or-die exams. Instead, there will be a series of lower-stakes Mastery Quizzes, each of which has opportunities for being retaken and improved upon.

You can see the Mastery Quiz schedule on the class Calendar. For more information see the Grades FAQ and the Mastery Quizzes FAQ.

To get started, let’s take a Practice Quiz!
