How do you know if your students are learning? Waiting until the mid-term or final exam to find out where students are struggling can creates a counter-productive tension in the classroom for both students and teachers. Whether you teach stand-alone sections of your own course or work with a faculty member to present course content in discussion groups, as a GTA you must learn to assess where students are struggling to learn, determine the reasons why, and develop effective interventions. This workshop will explain how to build frequent low-stakes assessments into your daily lesson plans, discuss ways of interpreting the assessment results, and offer practical strategies for addressing both group and individual needs.
