Course Description

This course focuses on the development of effective, practical techniques for establishing curricula for use in a standards-based education environment. The course examines the theoretical dimensions of curriculum development. Topics such as taxonomies, objectives, and lesson planning are addressed to show their connection to curriculum development and outcomes-based educational planning efforts. Assessment related topics such as reliability and validity of assessments, constructing classroom tests, constructing performance tasks and scoring rubrics, formative assessment in the classroom, and the uses and interpretation of test results will be addressed. Major requirements of the course include departmental field experiences and the development of a curriculum proposal that focuses on a topic related to the student's day-today classroom teaching.
