EEX4345: Introduction to Inquiry and Assessment

Description: The purpose of this course is to provide teacher candidates with: a) knowledge about teacher inquiry and assessment; b) opportunities for experience using inquiry skills and assessment practices; and c) a foundation for implementing reflective, systematic, and thoughtful inquiry into classroom practice. Teacher candidates will explore relevant classroom practice issues through writing, reflections, experimenting with teacher inquiry strategies, and sharing their work in a collaborative setting. Through the critical reading of teacher inquiry studies and experimentation with teacher inquiry strategies, teacher candidates come to recognize the value of inquiry and assessment as a way to make more informed decisions about practice.
