Classroom assessments can include non-graded in-class activities that provide useful feedback on students’ learning. Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs), as famously termed by Angelo and Cross in 1993, have been recommended by scholars and practitioners in the field of tertiary education. CATs is a set of specific strategies that educators can use to gauge both students’ knowledge and skills (e.g., prior knowledge, analysis and critical thinking, synthesis and creative thinking, problem solving, etc.) as well as students’ attitudes, values, and self-awareness. This workshop aims to introduce various types of CATs and discuss applications of CATs across disciplines.
