EDUC 611: Classroom Assessment (3)
Accomplished teachers value student assessment as a source of information about their own instruction as well as student learning. In this course, teachers acquire knowledge and experience with a range of assessment options and methods, and consider strategies for making appropriate choices among them. Teachers investigate their own current assessment practices to identify problems and concerns and consider factors other than knowledge that might impact student performance. They examine a variety of authentic assessment strategies and consider the interaction of assessment, pedagogy, and curriculum on instructional decision-making.
