Notecards. Asking students to write an answer on a notecard and pass it in to you (anonymously or with names on it for “attendance”) is a good way to gauge how many in the class understood or were able to apply a critical concept.

Make sure you have your “notecard questions” prepared before you walk into class, and that they’re open-ended enough to elicit the information you’re looking for. If your students aren’t understanding what you and the professor have determined they need to know, it’s time to modify your lesson plans or try some new teaching techniques.
