EDUC 312 - Assessment in Education

4 credits
This course provides a comprehensive foundation to understand the many purposes of formal and informal assessment, recognize the link between assessment and instruction, and utilize assessment data to inform educational decision making and instruction to promote the achievement of all learners. It is designed to help teacher candidates understand the importance of valid and reliable classroom assessments to support student learning, recognize the interplay between classroom assessments and larger scale assessments, and gather and make sense of classroom assessment data. Emphasis will be placed on data driven instructional decision-making by learning how to use formative and summative assessments, both traditional and authentic, to measure students’ progress, evaluate the attainment of learning outcomes, ascertain the success of instruction, monitor classroom climate, and evaluate program effectiveness. Fieldwork is required. The Off-Campus requirement will be satisfied when a student completes both EDUC 312 and EDUC 313.
