EDT 710 Assessing Student Performance 3 sem. hrs.
Educators must work to ensure high levels of achievement for all students. To accomplish this goal, they must have an excellent command of the relationship among curriculum, instruction and assessment. This course focuses on the pivotal role that assessment plays in informing instruction and determining if curricular goals are being met. Students will develop a facility in analyzing assessment data as one means of determining if instructional practices are effective and meet the needs of all students. In analyzing assessment data, students will identify areas in either instructional practice or the curricular program that may need improvement and will be able to access and use appropriate research to facilitate this improvement. Students will develop appropriate and meaningful research-based professional development for either individuals or staff to effect change. They will explore how to use technology effectively to assist them in collecting, analyzing, and reporting assessment data. This course is one of four required for a Teacher Leader Endorsement which also requires four years of teaching experience. Offered every Spring.
