EDUC 6550 - Assessment and Evaluation as Tools for Student Success♦


(3 sem. cr.) In this course, education professionals gain a comprehensive understanding of major concepts, principles, theories, and research related to middle level assessment. They investigate and assess the theory of middle level assessment, and they research, create, and evaluate methods of assessment and evaluation for the middle level classroom. Education professionals engage in various course assignments that emphasize performance assessment and evaluation strategies, rubrics, and multiple intelligence theory. Demonstrating their knowledge and ability to apply course content in the classroom, school, and community, they explain implications of standards-based reform as it relates to authentic assessment in the middle grades. They also develop a position paper to persuade faculty and administration to implement student-led conferencing and create a brochure for parents highlighting important information regarding assessment and evaluation.
