PSYED 3598 - DIRECTED STUDY IN APPLIED DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY

Credits: 1.0 - 6.0

Federal and state reforms in recent decades have focused on the establishment of standards and assessments as means of improving teaching and learning and closing the achievement gap between more and less privileged students. Reforms such as no child left behind, the common core state standards, and the federal race to the top competition have resulted in a proliferation of standards and high-stakes tests, and have been accompanied by both desirable and undesirable changes in school and district practices. In this course we will explore the debates surrounding these various standards and assessment reforms. The topics this course will address include the use of assessments to lever instructional change, the assumptions about learning that underpin different types of assessments and test-based accountability, and research investigating the influence of high-stakes testing on instruction and learning. This course also will consider research pertaining to high-stakes teacher evaluation including value-added models, pay for performance, and direct assessment of teaching quality.
