Traffic light cups can be used to assess pupil’s learning. With the 3 coloured paper cups on the pupil’s desk, they can be used to ask a question or to show understanding.

Traffic lights allow learners to respond without calling out.  In response situations, all pupils show the cup or label their work in the way that most accurately reflects their response. Using traffic lights is more challenging and participatory than the conventional hands up approach and provides a diagnostic tool for the adult.
