Description:

This page describes the ConcepTest, one of a series of Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) provided by the Field-tested Learning Assessment Guide (FLAG) website. The CATs of FLAG were constructed as a resource for science, technology, engineering and mathematics instructors to emphasize deeper levels of learning and to give instructors valuable feedback during a course. The ConcepTest consists of the instructor presenting one or more questions to a class along with several possible answers, and students indicating which answer they think is correct. This type of assessment allows the teacher to obtain immediate feedback on the level of class understanding, and to enhance teamwork and communication skills among students as they work together to determine the correct answer. The site provides an overview of this assessment instrument, including information about how to use a ConcepTest. This site is also linked to a set of discipline-specific "tools" that can be downloaded for immediate use, as well as supplementary links and sources to further explore this assessment technique.
