We’re finishing out 2015 with a new addition to our “Read About” series. This time we’re reading about Classroom Assessment Techniques – CATs (ReadAboutCATs) which are formative assessments designed to investigate what students are learning and how well they are learning it. Angelo and Cross wrote the definitive book on CATs and we have a copy in the Faculty Center that we’d be happy to lend. The book details 50 different techniques and our ReadAboutCATs briefly describes 3 of them: Minute Paper, Punctuated Lecture, and Group-Work Evaluation. We also provide links to resources for more on CATs. We hope you find this new resource helpful! Happy holidays!!
