  • Traditional learning models — where “homework” is used to assess and evaluate learning after the material is covered in class)
  • Flipped models — where homework is primarily used to introduce topics and/or evaluate students’ prior knowledge)
  • “Tipped” models — where adaptive assignments can be used to introduce and assess prior knowledge on a topic and quizzes or tests are used to assess learning after class coverage of the topics).
