ED 221 - Assessment in Education for Improved Practice (2 Cr.)

(cross listed as PSY 221)
Knowing how to evaluate a student’s progress and achievement is an essential component in the teaching/learning process. In this course, we explore the macro legislative and accountability context impacting educators including Federal Legislation, Maryland assessment practices, and the Common Core. We practice mico processes of collecting and using information to adjust a particular practice for a particular outcome. We learn to use the “language” of assessment as well as the appropriate and inappropriate uses of assessment results. Theories and basic principles of test construction, progress monitoring, Curriculum-Based Measures, and authentic assessment will be discussed. Spring semester. TBD.
