"After students have heard or read about an important principle, generalization, theory, or procedure, the instructor hands out an index card and asks them to write down at least one possible, real-world application for what they have just learned. In a nutshell, that is the Applications Card technique."

 Purpose"Applications Cards let faculty know in a flash how well students understand the possible applications of what they have learned. This technique prompts students to think about possible applications and, as a consequence, to connect newly learned concepts with prior knowledge. As they respond to the technique, students also see more clearly the possible relevance of what they are learning." — Classroom Assessment Techniques, Angelo, TA and Cross, KP, 1993
