ED 679 - Assessment of Science Teaching Learning

CRSE Type: Unique Course
This course supports educators in assessing what K-12 students know, their capacity to conduct investigations, their ability to reason scientifically, and their attitudes toward science. Current assessment practices, from informal questioning to standardized testing, are explored, and the use of assessment information to guide instruction is emphasized. The course also considers national data and examines connections between staff development, classroom practice, and student outcomes, thereby laying a foundation for discussions about the future direction of local, state, and national science improvement efforts.
