    • Helps you determine if the students understand a principle, term, or concept
    • Helps you discover if a student can apply a concept in a real-world scenario
    • Helps you determine if their ideas are changing
  • Post-Assessments Questioning Strategies
    • Occurs at the end of a topic, lecture, or semester
    • Helps you determine the students’ overall conceptual structure
    • Helps you determine if the students can synthesize concepts and principles to solve problems
