EDUC 4743 - Pedagogy and Assessment Seminar

Credits: 3

Assessment and classroom management in education are ongoing parts of effective instruction. As research continues to emerge about the appropriate use of management strategies, efficient classrooms, assessments, and assessment data, teachers must recognize the importance of classroom systems and properly aligned outcomes with assessments and how both inform students about their learning and teachers about their teaching. This course will explore the different tasks as part of the PPAT (Praxis Performance Assessment for Teachers) evaluation and begin to understand how each can be an instrument for instructional improvement and better development of first-year teacher presence. Consequently, teachers need to be able to premeditate efficient classroom systems while collecting and interpreting assessment data so that they can quantitatively and qualitatively adjust their instruction and/or curriculum so that it helps push student thinking and achievement. This course will process each of the different PPAT tasks and how they are collectively and individually related to teacher preparation and enhanced pedagogy. Each of these tasks are component-specific as they consider the necessary elements of quality teaching that leads to student achievement. Additional fee required.

Prerequisites: Admission to Teacher Education program and to the Student Teaching programs; concurrent enrollment in Student Teaching courses and EDUC 4731 .
