EDUC 8545 - Assessment and Data Analysis to Support Systemic Literacy Programs


(6 sem. cr.) Designing systems that effectively promote and support high levels of literacy proficiency requires the use of data that accurately describes the status of student, teacher, and school performance. This course will examine a variety of assessment tools and validity issues for addressing individual and classroom needs as well as district and state mandates. Topics include a focus on data analysis for tiered intervention decision making and the interpretation of data to drive recommendations at a systemic level. Skills of collaboration and stakeholder inclusion are examined. Quantitative and qualitative methods appropriate to understanding institutions, programs, and stakeholder interests are also explored.
