EEDUC 7115 Assessment for Learning in the Science Classroom

Assessment to support learning is the pedagogical focus of this course. Through classroom case studies, introductory readings, and discussion, participants examine the different purposes of assessment (principally formative and summative), then develop and implement assessment strategies. They consider how assessing inquiry skills, conceptual understanding, self- and peer-assessment, and feedback to learners on their progress can advance learning in the classroom. Participants plan a formative assessment into inquiry-based work that is conducted in the classroom.
