Art & Science of Assessment
Class evaluations and observations provide excellent feedback about student satisfaction and teaching style, but they do not provide the important details of how much your students are learning and how valid and reliable your assessments are. This course will provide participants an opportunity to review current practices and explore the cutting-edge research on the value of student assessment and its proper implementation in the classroom. You will acquire the knowledge and skills to make test taking pleasant and be able to take the fear out of assessment. Changing the way you assess student learning can dramatically improve your teaching effectiveness, as it provides immediate feedback on what works and what doesn't.
