How do you decide to move on from a concept?

When it's completely mastered? When it's 80% mastered? When you are done with that section of the book?

I move on to the next concept when I feel she understood what I was teaching her. The only subject I went by the book is Geography, everything else I printed from the Internet and didn't move on until she seemed ready. I don't believe in grades, I just talk to her about it and maybe do a worksheet to see if she understands it.

Our curriculum is a spiral approach, so I don't think they every truly move on.  They are constantly reviewing and doing it again to ingrain it.

We are tend to add on to a concept when I believe they have mastered it.

This is the way I've done it in the past but I think this year I'm trying a more spiral approach.

 When I think they've got it, or when they score above 87% on a test.

sometimes we move on when she decides she is done (keep in mind she is 6) and just come back to it later.
