Educational Philosophy: Curriculum + Assessment + Instruction = the trinity for Effective Teaching. I believe that success requires an understanding of what assessment is and is not AND the strategies required for the effective use of all Assessment formats. Assessment techniques provide the teacher with tools to check for student learning, apptitudes, and efficacy. Proper use, and development of these techniques will include opportunities to measure student learning of the outcomes established by the Teacher. Practitioners are accountable for student learning....knowing how to select, create, review, administer, and report assessment data is the goal for this study unit.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Oral and written presentation of research found on various assessment tools
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The policy on appropriate conduct as outlined in the student handbook will be observed and administered. Students who choose to use computers in class are responsible for their appropriate use while in class and when using them to complete assignments for the class. Students are expected to bring suitable note-taking and writing materials with them to class as part of reasonable preparation.
In addition and specifically, all students are expected to:
1. ... attend all class sessions.
2. ... arrive on time and prepared for class sessions.
3. ... participate in the discussions and class projects/activities.
4. ... complete weekly assignments.
5. ... use appropriate vocabulary, professional language, and conduct during class.
6. ... demonstrate positive and enthusiastic dispositions.
7. ... monitor their completion of required assignments so that they are finished on time with a high level of professionalism.
Mobile Phones and Messaging:
Mobile phones including I Phones, I Pads, and all similar devices are to be turned off during all class time.
Verbal or text messaging (receiving or sending) are not permitted at any time during class. Students who must have a phone turned on for emergency reasons must advise the instructor in advance and keep the phone on silent or vibrate mode.
Written Assignments: It is assumed that all papers will be completely edited and revised before being turned in. References should be cited using APA format within the contents of the papers. All papers should be saved for future revision and as a back-up in case work is lost or damaged. Any paper that receives a grade lower than 90%, may be revised one time only and resubmitted for grading. Students are encouraged to use the services of the writing center for assistance in revision or editing.
