Teaching with CATs: Classroom Assessment Techniques in STEM

Date and Time: Tuesday, May 27, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Searle Center Library, Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, 627 Dartmouth Pl., Evanston


CATs can be targeted to different situations, so how can we best put them to use in the STEM classroom? There are 3 broad categories where CATs can be useful: 1) Assessing prior knowledge, recall, and understanding; 2) Assessing learner attitudes, values, and self-awareness; 3) Assessing learner reactions to instruction. This workshop will explore each of these categories by providing a detailed overview of CATs and performing a series of group activities where different CATs targeting similar assessments will be used. We will find which CATs are more appropriate and more effective for different situations in the STEM classroom.
