This course examines the complexity of assessment by contrasting assessment theories with common practices in the classroom. Students explore the concept of a balanced assessment program that integrates formative and summative assessment practices. Students develop skills in creating a variety of assessment instruments (e.g., observation check-lists, tests, rubrics, portfolios). Issues and practices of large-scale assessment are also explored.
