I just finished Lesson 2 regarding Communication.
If a student can clearly articulate their thinking/process/understanding of the problem, I can assess their degree of understanding. When a student attempts to explain something without adequate understanding, it is immediately evident.
My students are paired up regularly because they have tables for 2. I ask them to work together. They are to ask their partner for help before they ask me.
I prefer to ask open ended questions so I know if there is understanding rather then just asking them for the answer to a question that they may have gotten the answer to from their partner.
I regularly use exit reflections but some students give very curt reponses or in those last few minutes of class they may not have undersood the question so their response may not be totally valid as an indicator of their understanding.
