EDUC 8115 - Assessment and Accountability in Education


(4 cr.) Increasingly, schools and educational committees ask educators at all levels to account for the influence of the educational process on learners and to make research-based decisions. In this course, education professionals build on their knowledge of theories of development and learning as they gain foundational skills in assessing and evaluating student learning, developmental outcomes, and educational programs. Acquiring key evaluation concepts, they also examine the purposes for collecting student data as well as the distinctions among various approaches to assessing learning. (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 8112.)
