This course develops students’ knowledge of testing and assessment and provides opportunities for students to apply that knowledge to instruction and curriculum issues. Students will review the critical roles of teachers and administrators in testing and assessment. Participants will examine concepts such as curriculum alignment, opportunity to learn, equity, and fairness, and relate these concepts to classroom assessments and other common district and statewide standardized assessments. Participants will address issues such as validity, reliability, and standard setting in the context of diverse perspectives about the construction, production, and interpretation of knowledge. Cr 3.
