Classroom assessment is an important component in teaching and research and is more than administrating tests and assigning grades to the students. Assessment monitors and gauges the achievement of learning objectives, and informs the instructors of their instructional effectiveness. It is an approach that helps instructors plan learning activities to support the articulated learning outcomes, and informs students of their learning progress. The practice of classroom assessment empowers both faculty and students to improve teaching and learning in the classroom. Faculty members who are interested in developing classroom assessment techniques can contact CETL to work with a specialist.
