In an age of accountability at all levels of our educational structure, it has become vitally important to understand the linkage between assessment, learning, and action research. It is the assumption that learners come into this course with a solid understanding of assessment and the role it plays in teaching and learning. The basics of assessment will be reviewed and linked to a wide range of strategies to improve learning in our Pre-K-16 educational structure. Action research is the tool many educators use as they “repair the plane while it is in flight.” The more proactive the leader is in the use of action research the more quickly logical changes can take place.
