Welcome to EPSY 485 Assessing Student Performance

This course will cover basic concepts and practices relating to classroom assessment. We will emphasize group work within and across disciplines. Although there are common threads relating to assessment that run through each discipline and major, please identify your own practical needs and focus on mastering that knowledge and those skills. 

This course was developed using a Learning by Design (UbD) framework. UbD focuses on backward design starting with overarching goals for mastery then develops the course content by working back toward daily and weekly lessons. 

In this course, we will focus on developing the knowledge and skills you will need to excel in your chosen profession.
