Once the concepts of CAT are understood, the instructor can move on to create course-specific techniques tailored to his or her teaching style and the learning styles of a particular class, thus greatly enhancing the usefulness of Classroom Assessment.
This book is extremely useful and would be a worthy addition to
both teachers’ and advisors’ libraries.
