Take a look at research done in the 1970s at the Institute for
Mathematical Studies in the Social Sciences (a Stanford University
research institute).  They did a lot of strong work on keeping the
student at 80% correct in several kinds of subject areas.  The
learning rate they found on those systems was substantially greater
than one grade-level per year without extra contact hours.
