ED 602 Introduction to Research and Assessment (3)
Various forms of assessment are reviewed with the goal of understanding the purpose of each form of assessment and its proper use and interpretation. Forms of assessment reviewed will include, at a minimum, standardized tests, performance assessment tests, and portfolios. Students will conduct original research in a school setting. Interpretation of the results of that research will be done using spreadsheets and statistical analysis software. Students will also conduct a literature review of research already conducted in their area of study.
