QSI International School of Bishkek follows Mastery Learning Approach.
In mastery learning programs, students are regularly given precise information on their learning process. (Hunter, 1984) This feedback identifies areas of learning needs and offers specific guidance and direction in correcting the errors and overcoming the students' difficulties. Feedback should also reward learning success. Mastery learning adds feedback and correctives in order to increase the efficiency and success of teaching and learning. (Cohen, 1994) Regardless of the initial planning, the curriculum, or the teaching, it is the feedback and correctives that form the foundation of a true mastery learning program.
Mastery learning is an instructional strategy and educational philosophy, first formally proposed by Benjamin Bloom in 1968. Mastery learning maintains that students must achieve a level of mastery in prerequisite knowledge before moving forward to learn subsequent information (Wikipedia).
“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.” —Mortimer Adler
