Identifying Misconceptions: Tools for Checking Student Understanding

Wednesday, September 20 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtually at:

How do you know students are getting it? How do students know they’re getting it? Tools such as polls and quizzes can help instructors identify misconceptions or areas where students may need more support to master a concept or skill. In this session, we’ll explore a range of tools including Blackboard Tests, student response systems, and reflective journals.


At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

1. Identify at least one tool that provides students a way to “check-in.” 
2. Develop a strategy for incorporating one tool in your course.
3. Create a short activity that incorporates one tool for checking student comprehension.
