1.
Post-lesson/homework activities or worksheets to make sure they grasp what was taught each day. Frequent (comprehensive) quizzes to assess their knowledge of medical terminology & knowledge that needs to be "memorized." Lots of hands on activities--> observation of how they perform skills we learn and critique when needed. Practice NOCTI questions weekly (possibly daily?)

A mix of formative and summative assessments. I like a mix of student learning methods, such as: providing the names of three plants. This uses visual and memory skills. Also, writing a paragraph on how to correctly mow a lawn, uses memory and instructional skills.
