Classroom assessment techniques (CATs) are short active learning activities you can use to get feedback on your students' learning and on your teaching.
CATs allow you to evaluate students':
- knowledge and skills, e.g. prior knowledge, recall, understanding, critical thinking, synthesis, creative thinking, problem-solving and application of knowledge
- attitudes, values, meta-cognition
- study and time management strategies
CATs also enable students to give you feedback on your teaching.
Commonly used CATs include:
- Muddiest point
- One minute paper
- Think Pair Share
- Concept mapping
- Pros and cons grid
