You are on a flight back from a conference where you presented your latest work. Your partner calls and tells you that a pipe burst in the basement. They are trying to save what they can, but need your help as soon as you arrive. Unfortunately, you have a report due to your department chair the next morning. You diligently blocked out time to complete it after returning home. As your flight prepares for departure, you grip your phone and send a last-minute email asking for an extension. Upon landing, you check your email.

Mastery quizzes are designed to help students gain competency in foundational lower-order skills before attempting higher-order thinking.
