Concentration in Data Literacy
The Data Literacy 12-credit online certificate concentration prepares teachers, building-level and district-level leaders to create, analyze and interpret a variety of student performance assessments in order to improve instruction and student learning. The four carefully-sequenced courses for the certificate focus on developing meaningful teacher-created and classroom-based student assessments, interpreting both informal and formal assessment data, and using those data in making curricular decisions. Practicing teachers and other school leaders have the opportunity to apply assessment and decision-making skills to their own classrooms or schools. Credits earned for the certificate may be applied toward the Educational Psychology, MS.
Concentration in Program Evaluation
The Program Evaluation 16-credit graduate certificate concentration prepares individuals seeking evaluation positions in educational organizations, government, and non-government agencies. Grounded in evaluation theory and practice, the program of study includes coursework in qualitative, quantitative, and evaluation methodologies that culminates in an internship. Students will acquire a skill set to engage in program evaluation and an appreciation for the distinct nature of evaluation work. Credits earned for the certificate may be applied toward the Educational Psychology, MS or the PhD in Education based on faculty approval.
