The best way to assure that students have grasped the material is to:

  1. Allow time for follow-up questions from the class.
  2. Pose concluding questions at the end of class.
  3. Make the previous day’s homework assignment the following day’s warm-up activity.
  4. Design chapter tests that assess the skills being taught separately so comprehension can be measured in each skill.
  5. Make sure the final exam is comprehensive since most subjects build upon themselves pyramidically.
