5. Fair Value Measurement
The following tables present the fair value hierarchy of our financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of April 30, 2021 and January 31, 2021 (in thousands):
Our money market funds are classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy because they are valued based on quoted market prices in active markets. We classify commercial paper, corporate bonds, and derivative financial instruments within Level 2 because they are valued using inputs other than quoted prices which are directly or indirectly observable in the market, including readily available pricing sources for the identical underlying security which may not be actively traded. Our derivative financial instruments consist principally of foreign currency forward contracts and are carried at fair value based on significant observable inputs. As such, they are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. None of our financial instruments were classified in the Level 3 category as of April 30, 2021 or January 31, 2021.
