This Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) is designed for experienced educators to gain deep mathematics content knowledge as well as expertise in research and evaluation and social and educational policy. The program covers assessment, adult learning and development, data analysis, and research methods, and offers electives that cover a variety of mathematics content areas. It ends with a thesis project that will contribute to the field of education.
This course is designed to engage participants in the examination of both summative and formative assessments and their implications for teaching and learning. Various types of classroom assessments and how they can be used to make instructional decisions based upon student responses will be developed. Participants will also examine how to make sense of the scores reported via standardized tests, what they mean, and what the implications are at the district, school, classroom, and individual student levels.
