There are two main differences between mastery moments and practice.

  1. Mastery moments include Activities from all available Mastery Profiles; practice includes only Activities from within the specific area the learner wants to explore.
  2. Mastery moments do not include Activities with unmet prerequisites; practice allows learners to select areas with unmet prerequisites (following our philosophy that we should not limit a learner’s ability to control their own learning.)

ProTip: A learner’s mastery level will be impacted in exactly the same way for both mastery moments and practice sessions. In fact, a practice session is just a self-directed mastery moment.

Activity selection will follow the same algorithm for both - where Otto will select the most valuable activities for a learner to practice.
