Simple learning outcomes, does not allow for higher learning outcomes. Mostly knowledge level and use of student memory.

Students can often guess the answer.
The main goal of classroom testing is to obtain valid reliable and useful information about students achievement.

Before Instruction: Pretesting, this is used to determine student readiness and to be able to make modifications to the instruction.

During Instruction: this is used to monitor progress, provide feedback to students and teachers, usually formative assessment (test, quiz).

After Instruction: this is used to see if students have achieved learning outcomes. Can be a possible pretest for the next unit. Usually summative assessment (end of the chapter test.)
