Mastery learning as a teaching methodology in engineering graphics

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Mastery learning has been utilized successfully in education in such fields as English, Mathematics, Physical Education, and Science. Mastery learning is defined as the "attainment of adequate levels of performance on tests that measure specific learning tasks". The Engineering Graphics Technology Department at Oklahoma State University in Okmulgee has utilized various forms of mastery learning for the teaching of engineering graphics, drafting, and computer aided design. This paper describes how this department has incorporated mastery learning into its curriculum. Included in this paper will be background information on the theory of mastery learning and the Engineering Graphics Technology Department's utilization of this theory in its courses. Additionally, qualitative feedback from students will be explored.
