Assessing Student Performance

 

Students may apply a maximum of six credit hours from workshops or alternative format courses to their program of graduate studies. The Division of Education at Walsh University, the Ohio Department of Education, and other accredited institutions offer these opportunities to in-service educators. The student’s advisor, the Director of Graduate Education, and registrar should be consulted PRIOR to workshop or course enrollment at another institution to confirm that the content is of sufficient rigor to warrant the University’s acceptance of the credits. Additionally, through a collaborative agreement with Walsh University, the Communicate Institute regularly offers the courses listed below. Only Communicate Institute courses listed in this catalog may be applied toward fulfillment of the M.A.Ed. requirements at Walsh University.

Schedule of Classes

Graduate courses are offered predominantly during evening hours to allow students who work access to classes. Courses are offered in a three semester format through summer, fall, and spring. Courses will be offered in an accelerated format with two, 8-week sessions in Fall and Spring Semesters. Course rotation allows for an alternating format, which offers students easy access to the courses needed to complete their programs of study. Courses offered in the summer may be scheduled either during the day or evening hours.

Course Rotation

These courses are offered on a regular rotation, as shown below. Graduate students in the Division of Education are encouraged to attend to this rotation. Fall and Spring semester offerings are scheduled in the evening to accommodate in-service educators and students with other daytime obligations. Those identified as occurring during the "May" term usually meet from the first week in May through the first week in June, during evening class sessions. Those classes meeting during the "June/July" term begin in mid-June (after area schools have concluded their academic year) and continue through mid- to late-July. These classes will meet during daytime periods and are scheduled so that students may enroll in multiple offerings during the same summer term. The courses for Reading Endorsement (EDT 650, EDT 651, EDT 652, EDT 653, EDT 654 and EDT 655) are offered every fall and spring term, and in alternative formats during the May and/or June/July terms. Special Topics in Education (EDT 7XX) is offered in response to identified needs, interests, and new developments in the profession. (Rotation of courses may change based on increases/decreases in enrollments.)
