***********************************
Do you ever wonder how assessing students makes you a better teacher? If
your answer is "yes," you're not alone. With an understanding of adult
educators' assessment questions and concerns in mind, ProLiteracy and
World Education have developed a series of four online courses for
teachers that focus on student assessment as part of effective adult
education.
Two of these courses open in June:
* NEW COURSE! Fundamentals of Assessment (June 2 - June 16)
Your guide to basic concepts in student assessment - learn how to use
standardized assessments effectively and develop better in-class
assessments.
* NEW COURSE! Assessments Developed by Teachers and Students (June
16 - July 17)
Expand your assessment toolkit! Learn about tools to check day-to-day
student progress, dynamic forms of assessment, and how to involve your
students in assessment design.
These courses combine top-quality content on student assessment in adult
education and literacy with an easy-to-use online format. In these
facilitated courses you'll explore assessment concepts and strategies
in-depth through online activities, readings, and discussion boards, all
with an expert facilitator and adult education colleagues across the
country.
