Information about "mastery-based" courses in mathematics?

My department is interested in transitioning to a "mastery-based" precalculus class at the college level. The basic idea is that students would be allowed (somehow) to work at their own pace, and success in the class would be by demonstrating mastery of most of the material (80%?). Somehow. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of teaching, in any discipline? [more inside]
