ASTL 6705/7705 - Assessment of Learning
Assessment of learning for the classroom is an introduction to systematic assessment at the classroom level. The course provides an overview of models for planning and implementing classroom assessment projects. The emphasis in the course, however, is implementation, data collection, analysis, and reporting of results on classroom assessment projects. This course presents a rationale for learning-centered assessment and an overview of the tools, techniques, and issues that educators should consider as they design and use assessments focused on learner needs. Underlying assumptions in the course are: (1) assessment is viewed as deliberately designed to improve and educate student performance, not merely audit it; (2) assessment is a way to help students systematically self-correct their performance; and (3) assessment has two essential qualities (anchoring in authentic tasks and feedback to revise performance). The course examines what it would mean, in reality, if assessment were central to student and teacher work.
