Montclair State University’s Online Educational Assessment graduate certificate program provides aspiring and practicing educators, educational leaders and others invested in schools with the practical knowledge and skills needed to engage in valid and ethical assessment practices that guide decision making to inform teaching practices and school/district policies.
Given the recent changes in educational policy at the national level, schools and districts need to provide ongoing evidence of student learning and achievement. This means that all members of school/district communities need to become versed in a variety of assessment activities, multiple methods for interpreting and summarizing data, and constructing sound educational policy and practices that are supported by the local evidence provided in schools. This certificate program is specifically designed to prepare educators for using assessment data to inform instruction.
