SN420 Psychological and Educational Assessment
Education credits: 3
Students will be introduced to a variety of educational assessment techniques ranging from traditional classroom assessment tools and standardized tests, to more contemporary performance based assessment
approaches. Attention will be given to the practical assessment versus theoretical treatment of evaluation. This will challenge students to consider whether assessment is valuable and how assessment and teaching go together. Students will be given the opportunity to evaluate and administer formal assessment tools, design and administer informal and alternative assessment tools, evaluate selected test materials and protocols, and determine
how the classroom teacher can use all of this information in designing his/her teaching lessons and materials. Students will determine how the classroom teacher can use all the information in designing lessons that reach the students learning style and level
of achievement. Prerequisites: SN311 and Junior or Senior in good standing in Teacher Education Program.
