  • Explain basic statistical principles that will help educators explain standardized test results (reliability, validity, confidence interval, true score, etc.).
  • Know how to create more reliable and valid assessments.
  • Understand how can checklists and rating scales aid assessment.
  • Describe the use of portfolios as assessment instruments.
  • What is the purpose of grading?
