EDUC 6658 - Formative Assessment: Assessment for Learning♦


(3 sem. cr.) The focus of this course is assessment to support learning. Through classroom case studies, introductory readings, and discussions, participants distinguish the different purposes of assessment (principally formative and summative). They identify formative assessment as part of teaching, aimed at advancing learning, not at labeling or grading it. Participants experience and reflect on ways of assessing inquiry skills and conceptual understanding, the importance of self- and peer-assessment, and the provision of feedback to learners on their progress. The course culminates in participants planning formative assessment into inquiry-based classroom experiences for students.
