Hi Folks, 


If you have a sec, I just want to make sure I'm on the same page when it comes to learning mastery in Canvas.


In this doc, How do I use the Learning Mastery Gradebook to view outcome results in a course? it states,


Score levels are calculated based on half of the outcome mastery threshold. For example, if the mastery threshold is 3 points, half of 3 is 1.5. Scores between 1.6 and 2.9 are counted near mastery, while scores less than 1.5 are considered remedial.  Therefore, a student score of 2/3 would be above 1.5 and count as near mastery.

So in that case is the following true if I set mastery to 10 in an outcome?

  • Exceeds Mastery: >10
  • Mastery: = 10
  • Near Mastery: >5 & <10
  • Well Below Mastery: <5
