Classroom assessments are formative in nature and thus are used to make immediate changes to teaching and learning strategies. They can occur at multiple times throughout a class and results can be used to improve course content, methods of teaching, and, ultimately, student learning. This is a just-in-time form of assessment that leads to immediate change if needed.

|Misconception / Preconception Checks||Analyzing Problems||Quizzes graded/ungraded)|
|Peer Reviews||Jigsaw (Aronson)||Muddiest Point (Angelo & Cross)|
|Concept Mapping||Role Play||Beginners & Enders|
|Reflective Writings||Student-led Discussions||Think-Pair-Share Analysis|
