    Hi Elisha,<br>Thanks for getting back to me.  We should definitely brainstorm some ideas.  Towards the end of this past school year, I briefly explored mastery assessments by given the students an expert, intermediate and beginner question ( all grade-level appropriate) based on the curriculum expectations we were looking at.  The challenge I faced was how to correctly assess it and how to capture their learning.  For example, if a student is answering an expert question and they showed all their work but made a calculation error, are they an expert?  If not, do I make them do the intermediate question?  I have seen teachers use, a check +, check -. etc., to record their student’s observations, conversations, and products, but I am not sure how this relates or turns into a final grade on a report card?

    I guess we will learn together!
