Assessment, Evaluation and Policy (Graduate Certificate)
The Certificate in Assessment, Evaluation, and Policy provides the skills and knowledge to design, develop, implement, and analyze a broad range of assessment systems; evaluate teaching, learning and educational programming; and develop multiple strategies to synthesize, share, and use data for decision-making purposes.
Embedded in each of the courses is an emphasis on the role of broader policy contexts in assessment, evaluation, and decision-making. The intended audience of this certificate includes professionals in education and related fields (e.g., psychology, social work, family studies, and nonprofit management) such as teachers, administrators, district office staff, museum educators, policymakers, consultants, among others. This post-baccalaureate certificate can be completed in roughly one and a half years through completion of five four-credit courses.
