Classroom assessment techniques (CATs) are efficient and powerful ways for instructors to collect formative feedback from students to monitor and improve the learning process while a course is still in progress. Angelo and Cross's classic book Classroom Assessment Techniques (1993) includes instructions for 50 well-tested CATs suited to a variety of teaching contexts. The presenters have reviewed all 50 CATs and identified 13 that can be conducted with clickers using the original instructions and 10 more that can be conducted with adaptations. The session will introduce CATs, demonstrate their use with clickers, and report outcomes from a "CATs with Clickers" faculty development program.
