EDUC 7223 - Using Assessment and Data for School Improvement


(3 sem. cr.) In an age of accountability, leaders must be able to use multiple forms of data to inform curricular and instructional decisions. In this course, education professionals examine the inextricable link between curricular content, instruction, and assessment within a system. They examine the role of formative and summative assessments in making decisions and the various forms and purposes of assessment. Education professionals learn how the ongoing use of assessment data can move curriculum and instruction beyond mediocrity to support rigorous learning for all students. Through conceptual and applied assignments, they explain how to use data to lead school reform, and they examine how to select curricular programs that support struggling students and how to articulate a system’s assessment targets to the larger educational community.
