Frequently Asked Questions

What do we do when students don’t pass Mastery Checks?


Because the skills spiral and are cumulatively reviewed, the teacher should start by targeting the errors in upcoming lessons. If the student doesn’t pass two consecutive mastery checks, this may be a signal that additional reinforcement or small group intervention is needed. Lessons can be repeated in small groups by the classroom teacher or interventionist at another time focusing on the errors made in the Mastery Checks, in addition to moving them along with the rest of the class on the whole group lessons.
