The course is designed to introduce educational assessment. In class, we will discuss some of the modern approaches in measurement and evaluation of education quality. We will reflect on classroom assessments, large-scale assessments (PISA, PIRLS, TIMSS), and factors related to educational quality. Students will learn about different assessment types, including diagnostic, formative, summative, norm-referenced and criterion-referenced tests.
In the context of the course, students will complete a number of projects designed to get some hands-on experience on the application of educational assessment.
