  • Engage student in practice and application exercises to clarify and deepen conceptual understanding and mastery of skills
  • Assess student progress throughout the instruction with formative assessments that provide feedback to both student and teacher
  • Remediate where necessary
  • Provide summative assessment with both objective (computer-scored) and open-ended (teacher-scored) instruments at the end of each unit and semester
