Classroom Assessment Techniques for Librarians

Classroom assessment techniques (CATs) are learner-centered activities that engage students in learning and yield actionable assessment results. The CATs featured in this book are arranged by what they assess, i.e., prior knowledge and understanding, analysis and critical thinking, synthesis and creative thinking, application, attitudes and self-awareness, and learner reactions. Examples include the minute paper, preconception check, muddiest point, think-pair-share, opinion polls, and chain notes.
