ED 699 Assessment, Analysis and Instruction in Reading and Writing
This course is required for those seeking Reading Specialist Certification. Topics in this course focus on the graduate student’s development of knowledge and skills related to selecting, developing and administering a range of formal and informal literacy assessments (norm-referenced, criterion-referenced, summative, formative, informal). As this knowledge and skills are fundamental to the development of instructional decisions at a classroom and school-wide level, this integration also is integrated throughout the course. Students are challenged to acquire skills necessary for providing leadership related to literacy assessment policy and practice at school and district levels.
IMPORTANT: Students must have current background checks documents on file with the School of Education. (See Background Checks)
Prerequisite: All courses in Reading Specialist Program with the exception of ED 595 , the culminating practicum, and electives, will be prerequisites for this course. This is the final course to be taken prior to the practicum.
