Program Details

Kent State University offers an online degree in Evaluation and Measurement, preparing educators with the key essentials when making a difference in children's lives.  The goal of the professional development and outreach program is to provide student teachers with high quality academic skills and opportunities in the form of credit-earning workshops and off/on campus courses.

The Evaluation and Assessment program is a specialized area of study in the everyday life of each classroom teacher.  The key elements when understanding how to interpret standardized test scores to creating authentic assessments in the classroom, are just a few of the core focuses of the Master’s program.  Knowing and understanding the current realm of assessment methods will increase a student teachers skill as well as serve as the foundation when entering career opportunities.
