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.

Diagram with three levels. Top level shows a Module with a mastery goal of Level 3: Competent. Below this, is a Topic with a mastery goal of Level 3: Competent. Below that are two Concepts. One Concept has a mastery goal of Level 3: Competent and one has a mastery goal of Level 5: Expert (is overridden).

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.

Sample Scenario

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. 

Two diagrams. The one on the left shows the Retail Mastery Profile. Below it is the Effective Communication Module with a mastery goal of Level 4: Proficient. The diagram on the right shows the Warehouse Mastery Profile. Below it is the Effective Communication Module with a mastery goal of Level 2: Aware.
