How do you Design a System of Assessment in a Mastery-based Environment?

This is part of a set of articles that 2Revolutions developed for Mastery Assessment Week to feature some of the best and most applicable tools and courses from their InspirED platform, a social learning platform featuring a curated set of high-quality, free/open content resources to support educators in honing their educational practice.
