Course Description

This course is designed to provide in-service teachers with learning theories (constructivism, learning styles, multiple intelligences, and brain-compatible learning) as a foundation for broadening their classroom assessment repertoire. Authentic models of assessment will be compared to more traditional formats, and rubric design will be explored. Current issues in assessment will also be a focus of study and discussion in this class.
