HW:
1: Study for a Collective Assessment Test (CAT) on RAT’s 1.2, 1,3, 1.4, 1.5. This really an in class quiz that is worth the value of your 3 graded RATS.

Review Material:

Blank RATS                                    RAT Keys                       RAT Review Videos
 Readiness Assessment Test 2 Readiness Assessment Test 2 – KEY Readiness Assessment Test 3 Readiness Assessment Test 3 KEY Watch the Review Video Readiness Assessment Test 4 Readiness Assessment Test 4 KEY Readiness Assessment Test 5 Readiness Assessment Test 5 KEY Watch the Review Video

Your individual quiz (Cumulative Assessment Test) or CAT will be worth the value of  3 RATS or all of the RATs that were counted for your current Grade from your last CAT.  Eventually we will take an EXAM that will include topics on all of the CAT’s and this Exam is called the  Diagnostic Observation Grade or DOG.

So assessments are broken down into RATS ( 3- 4 times a week), CAT’s (once every 3 or 4 RATS) and DOGS (once every 2 or 3 CATS).
