2. MicroPD A-EDU 5.1: Classroom Assessment

Program: AATLAS

Audience: K-12 Teachers and Leaders

Dates: On-Going (Ends Mar 1, 2020)

The main objective of this mini-course is to gain familiarity with the construction of quality educator made assessments in the classroom. While there are many publisher-made assessments available to classroom teachers, they are not guaranteed to be constructed most appropriately, align best to standards and/or best meet the needs of a diverse student population (culturally or cognitively). This course explores the multiple forms of items to be used in constructing assessment, the rationale to their use and how to perform item analysis. The objective of the course is to highlight how to create an assessment and analyze the results to assure the teacher is using a high quality constructed tool to measure student achievement. The course is suited for district-level instructional staff/supervisors/administrators, school-based administrators, instructional coaches, grade-level instructional leaders, department chairpersons, and classroom teachers.

Program: AATLAS

Audience: K-12 Teachers and Leaders

Dates: On-Going (Ends Mar 1, 2020)

The main objective of this micro-course is to gain familiarity with best practices to establish processes to support instruction in the classroom.

This course explores multiple actions the classroom teacher can take to establish a proactive positive culture in their classroom from instructional/academic and socio-emotional perspectives that also align with best meeting student needs. The objective of the course is for a teacher to establish, from the first days of class, processes to effectively manage the many aspects that affect the classroom and to become/remain open-minded to the ever-evolving process of continuous improvement as a professional. The course is suited for district-level instructional staff/supervisors/administrators, school-based administrators, instructional coaches, grade-level instructional leaders, department chairpersons, and classroom teachers.

Program: AATLAS
