Classroom Assessment Techniques:

What are Students Really Understanding?

"Any questions?" "Is everybody with me?" When we ask students these vague type of questions, we are often met with silence. Does that mean that everything is clear and understood? Do they really understand or are they experiencing what Kruger and Dunning (1998) refer to as "overconfidence bias"? Or are they just too afraid to ask a question in front of their classmates? In this workshop, we will discuss and practice alternatives for assessing student learning -- techniques that are simple and require minimal preparation and class time.
