EDUC 7350 - A New Vision of Assessment, Evaluation, and Accountability


(4 cr.) This course recasts the role of assessment and evaluation as a vehicle for positive change. The notion of accountability is supported by the concepts of social and ethical responsibility, and informs continual improvement efforts for individuals and organizations. Theory, trends, and systemic perspectives of the field are connected to changes required for enhancing performance and increasing effectiveness. Topics include evaluator credibility, national and international assessments and comparisons, and facilitation with individual and cultural values underpinning evaluation purposes, processes, and judgments. (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 7117 and RSCH 7200D.)
