"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the caliber of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

Print Based Course Printed Course

When used regularly, formative assessments and rubrics enable every teacher to determine what students know and what they still need to learn. This course explores a variety of engaging activities that check for and increase understanding, including interactive writing, portfolios, multimedia presentations, audience response systems, and much more. Specifically, concepts such as the gradual release of responsibility, guided instruction, formative assessment systems, data analysis, and quality instruction are explored. This course is intended for educators who are already familiar with formative assessments and rubrics as well as those who are not. Students who complete this course will learn how assessments and rubrics can work in tandem to create a seamless, comprehensive formative assessment system. The projected outcome of this course is to provide classroom teachers with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies needed to enhance an active give-and-take relationship between teachers and students to promote learning.
