What is a Unit Mastery Goal?

Unit Mastery goals are short-term goals aimed at achieving the Mastery of a single unit. These goals are designed to align with current instruction and to promote progress and understanding of the unit's content. By assigning these goals, teachers can ensure that students' learning is in sync with the classroom curriculum, making education more effective and engaging. Unit Mastery goals work together with Course Mastery goals to create a year-long learning path for students.

Here are the steps below to create a Unit Mastery goal:

Step 1: Log into your Khan Academy account. Click your name in the top right-hand corner, then select the “Teacher Dashboard” link from the dropdown list.

Step 6: Select a due date for your Unit Mastery goal.
Optional next step: Editing which students are receiving the goal.
