EDUC 540. Evaluating Learners and Learning
Students investigate the uses and functions of traditional and alternative assessments in the context of 1) recognized measurement principles; 2) national and state, and local standards and benchmarks; and 3) sensitivity to learner differences and needs. Students will develop, administer and interpret results of a variety of classroom assessments and scoring instruments. Legal, ethical and political aspects of collecting and disseminating assessment results and grades will also be examined.
