Brief Description
"Students are given a theory or concept that they have been taught (for example, thesis statements, the scientific method, or push-pull factors) and are challenged to figure out a way to apply it in a new and different context."

"This technique’s value as an instructional activity lies in the way it challenges students to move beyond surface-level thinking. Students have to relate previous knowledge to new situations. They have to look for meaning, and search for a solution to a problem (how to use the knowledge). The LAT requires thought, and it requires students to actively grapple with the information." — Learning Assessment Techniques, Barkley, EF and Major, CH, 2016
