ECHD622-01C Observing, Documenting and Assessing in Early Childhood/Early Intervention (with Serra Acar)

This is an introduction to early childhood measurement and assessment techniques. The course covers fundamentals of psychometric theory, structure and uses of standardized tests and skills for alternative classroom assessment techniques for child study. The principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in assessment are identified and practiced. Candidates learn about goals, benefits, and uses of assessment. They systematically observe, document, and use effective assessment strategies in responsible ways-in partnership with families and other professionals- to positively influence children's development and learning. This course requires 10 hours of clinical observation in various settings, including natural settings (home, day car, Head Start) and medical settings.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this spring. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
