Re-engineering Information Technology


Liz Glowa


This issue brief lays out the design considerations for the next generation of information technology systems to support mastery learning systems. Technical characteristics of this student-centered approach that must be built into the information systems include a) providing transparency into what students know and need to accomplish, b) robust user tracking and reporting of performance, c) differentiated instruction and curriculum, and d) options on how students can demonstrate learning. In addition, the information systems are designed to support the multiple functions and responsibilities of the education system to support student attainment of competencies.
