Formative assessment is used as a check on learning, and is done periodically throughout the learning experience. Classroom assessment techniques (C.A.T.s) are low-stakes, non-graded assessments for students and instructors. They provide faculty with feedback on what, how much, and how well their students are learning. Instructors can use this feedback to modify their teaching to improve student learning. Students can use it to learn more effectively. In this introductory-level session, participants will learn how to implement the “minute paper,” “muddiest point,” “think-pair-share,” and other quick ways to assess and enhance learning. Questions and discussion will be encouraged.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
