How To Institute the Cross/Angelo Classroom Assessment Training Program on a College Campus, or, How To Create a Dynamic Teaching/Learning Partnership between Teachers and Students.
Catlin, Anita; Kalina, Michelle
This manual offers practical guidelines, based on the work of K. P. Cross (1988) and T. A. Angelo (1991), on implementing a Classroom Assessment Training Project (CATP) at a high school or college. The manual contains information on planning, budgeting, training, and content. The Cross/Angelo Classroom Assessment Model relies on quick, anonymous written feedback from students about their understanding of course content and their reactions to instruction. Unlike tests and quizzes, Classroom Assessment Techniques are ungraded, allowing instructors to adjust instruction rather than assess achievement. Chapter 1 of the manual provides an overview of the Classroom Assessment Model, defining terminology, reviewing the model's philosophical and historical background, and outlining related research. Chapter 2 details the steps to implementing a CATP, covering administrative support, fiscal requirements, training of faculty leaders, reassigned time for coordinators, compensation for faculty participants, clerical support, purchase of textbooks, sources of funding, budget breakdown for sample college, factors to ensure program success, selecting and training a leader/trainer, timeline for implementation, recruitment of faculty, and length and mix of training. Chapter 3 describes the faculty training sessions, providing information on planning, the content of the first training session, follow-up workshops, encouragement of teacher participation, and responses to problematic feedback. Finally, chapter 4 provides supplementary materials, including samples of a faculty leader contract, participant contract, and agenda and handouts for the first training session; the names, phone numbers, and disciplines of California community colleges faculty who have been trained in the techniques; and 18 references.
