Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS)

Wednesday, April 10, 2013, from 11:45am to 1:00pm
Strand Union Building, Room 235

Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS) are evaluations used primarily to inform teaching and improve learning rather than to assign grades, and are used throughout the semester rather than at the end.  The purpose is to improve the quality of student learning.

Join us for this lively and very participatory session to learn more about CATS, to hear specific examples and share your own of how they can be successfully used, and to make a plan for using CATS in your own classes.

Facilitators: Marilyn Lockhart, Center for Faculty Excellence; Vaughan Judge, Director of the School of Art; Heidi Lindsey, Instructor of Statistics, Mathematical Sciences; and experienced others.

Registration is required by 12:00 noon, Monday, Apr. 8, 2013.  To register, go to:
