Educational Assessment: Assessing Student Learning in the Classroom  

 Course Description

Welcome to Educational Assessment: Assessing Student Learning in the Classroom!  Curriculum, instruction, and assessment work together to support student learning. Students are provided with opportunities to learn the skills, concepts, and work-study practices necessary to be successful in classrooms. Assessments measure student progress toward the standards, help teachers identify each student's instructional needs, and inform parents about what and how their child is learning. The assessments also help to gauge how well schools are supporting the achievement of all students.

However, no matter how many assessments there are, without educators able to use assessments, those assessments are worthless. As educators, we must know how to conduct the assessment, interpret the data, and develop priorities for action. We also must take into account data from other sources, notably the parents and psychologists. We then have to put all this information into some organized format and make the information clear to colleagues and parents.

In order to do this, we have to bring our skills and knowledge about the subject matter into play while answering these questions:

  • What is the prerequisite knowledge for this area of the curriculum?
  • How important is theparticular area?
  • Would having a "less than very high" level of competence in one area predispose the child to failure in other areas?
  • How much time should be spent on aparticular topic?
  • Should we consider an alternative area?

This computer-based instruction course is a self-supporting program that provides instruction, structured practice, and evaluation all on your home or school computer.  Technical support information can be found in the Help section of your course.
