EEDUC 6166 Classroom Assessment for Middle School and High School Teachers

This course investigates formative classroom assessment for making decisions about instruction and student learning. During the course, participants will explore a broad range of assessment strategies and develop assessment instruments including: selected response assessments, essay tests, and performance assessments. Use of observation and personal communication in assessment will also be explored. Participants will work with summative assessment results (such as state test data) to understand how different forms of assessment can be used to determine whether or not students are progressing toward meeting standards.
