In Using Evidence to Guide Teaching and Learning, you will learn how to examine various forms of student data and use findings from analysis to improve instruction. Through viewing a Web seminar on classroom-based assessment, video examples, in-depth readings, and guided activities, you’ll learn practical ways to put your learning into action in your classroom and school.
This cohort-based online course will kick off in January 2013 and run for 8 weeks. In addition to reading and viewing a variety of professional resources, you will be expected to submit assignments by set dates and participate fully as a member of the cohort by interacting with and providing feedback to others in the group. Your enrollment may include a LIVE Web seminar event on classroom-based assessment. Details about this will be provided to course registrants. Those who are not able to be present for the live event will receive access to the recording of this event. Assessment of this course will be Pass/Fail and will be determined by the course facilitator.
On Being Successful in this Course: As an online course, success depends on your thorough reading and viewing, your independence in understanding the readings, and integration of ideas, concepts, and strategies that are presented in the resources. Participants will be asked to post assignments and reflections weekly. It is expected that participants post on time in order to prepare for subsequent learning. Graduate continuing education credit is available for an additional charge through the University of San Diego.
