Determining the Mastery Goal
The mastery goal set for a Module is inherited by everything within it — Topics, Concepts, and Activities — but can be overridden for individual Concepts. This is the mastery level you want your learners to achieve.
ProTip: We recommend that you do not override a Concept’s mastery goal unless you have a very specific reason for doing so.
A Module can be assigned to multiple Mastery Profiles and have a different mastery goal in each. This allows you to require different groups of learners to have different depths of knowledge. If a learner is assigned the same Module twice, and in each Mastery Profile the Module is assigned a different goal, the higher goal will apply.
Everyone at Fina Shoes needs to complete the Effective Communication Module, but not everyone needs the same level of knowledge. For example, employees in the Retail Department need a much deeper understanding of the material than employees in the Warehouse Department, who rarely interact with customers.
James assigns the Module to the Retail Mastery Profile and sets the mastery goal to Level 4: Proficient. He also assigns the Module to the Warehouse Mastery Profile and sets the mastery goal to Level 2: Aware. He repeats this process for each Mastery Profile, assigning different mastery goals based on each department’s needs.
