This non-degree program leading to Initial license in Instructional Technology gives you a foundation in 21st Century teaching and learning. Assessment, digital media, supporting all learners with technology, human development, and designing curriculum that integrates technology are covered in this dynamic program.

This course investigates uses of classroom assessments to make decisions about instruction and student learning. During the course, participants will explore a broad range of assessment strategies, including: selected response assessments (such as multiple choice tests), extended written response assessments, and use ofobservation and personal communication. Participants will learn about the technologies that support assessment design, and they will use technology to design balanced assessments that both prove and improve student achievement.
