Description. In this interactive and engaging session, participants will learn methods for getting quick, easy feedback from their students using Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) as described by Angelo and Cross (1993). The presenter will provide a basic overview of formative and summative feedback to serve as a framework for understanding the power of CATs. Participants will use CATs actively as a part of the session, review several CATs strategies, and share ideas for how they will incorporate CATs into their own classroom.
Learning Outcomes. After attending the session, participants will
* Understand the basics of formative and summative feedback
* Explain the concept and usefulness of Classroom Assessment Techniques
* Outline a set of CATs strategies they can use in their own classroom
