Stimulating Students to Succeed with Standards Based Grading

Talk Abstract
Students often don't master required prerequisite material in foundational courses, and then they struggle in later courses that
require mastery of earlier concepts. To move students towards mastery learning and full proficiency, I implemented Standards Based Grading in Discrete Mathematics, requiring them to fully master certain areas in order to pass the class. Students can retake evaluations as needed to pass. Their grade is based on the number of learning objectives mastered over the course of
the quarter.
