This week, students took their first readiness assurance test (see team-based learning, Larry Michaelsen) to reinforce the following concepts: The information cycle, Invisible Web, Service-Learning, and the course syllabus! Yes, we ask questions about the syllabus to be sure that they've read it! They take the RAT individually, and then as a team. They get the better of the two scores, which is almost always the team score. The team discussion helps them understand/retain the concepts.
