The purpose of this documentary account is twofold. First, the authors describe two strategic instructional assignments embedded in university courses at a large research institution in the United States that were designed to help teaching candidates move toward mastery. Second, the authors explicate candidates' performances on the assessments as well as evidence of the reliability of the assessments and scoring procedures.
