About 20% of students in Iowa's Muscatine Community School District are following a different curriculum than their peers, and it's based on the idea that student don't move on from one concept until it's been mastered and they're ready for the next. The result is that students within the same grade level at a school may be working on different levels of math; more advanced students would move ahead to higher-level work while struggling students get the help before moving on. State leaders are considered whether the concept of "competency-based learning" should be put into practice statewide.
