CATs: A Student's Gateway to Better Learning.
Steadman, Mimi; Svinicki, Marilla
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n75 p13-20 Fall 1998
Understanding the link between classroom assessment techniques (CATs) and cognitive learning theory not only allows college teachers to choose and design CATs that fit particular classroom needs, but helps them explicate to students the potential applications of CATs to study strategies in general. Once students make this leap, the effects of a single class activity are multiplied. (MSE)
