Using Assessment and Evaluation

Course Description:

When assessments are used properly -- in a traditional or alternative format -- they provide important data sources that inform both teaching and learning. This course will help you understand your assessment choices and select/implement the best assessment options for you and your students. Delve into a full array of assessment and evaluation tools, including rubrics, journals, formal and informal assessments, and portfolios.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.

The number of hours identified for each course reflects time spent online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing offline coursework and assignments.
