EDA 78700 Curriculum and Instruction: Assessment and Evaluation

This course provides an opportunity for EdD students to engage in meaningful research, determining the most effective means for assessing the current needs of their workplace. Through this process, students will be expected to demonstrate resourceful thinking as they research examples of needs assessments highlighted in peer-reviewed research articles; determine the types of data needed to propose effective change; design and implement a needs assessment; and use the data and extant literature to propose a change. Students will present their proposals for peer review, and then refine their plans as appropriate for their Problems of Practice.
