Sal Khan: Let’s teach for mastery — not test scores
Fill in learning gaps and once you master something move to the next topic or subject. Traditional education models don’t do this. Instead, they teach, do homework, then test. Even though there are gaps, the teacher moves on to the next subject. Many times in math when students have gaps, this causes problems later on in their learning. We wouldn’t  build a house on  a foundation with holes, but we send students on to the next topics even though their foundations aren’t strong.
