Course: PDA Engaging Learners through Informative Assessment
Dates: October 9, 2019 - November 22, 2019
Required Online Group Meeting Dates: October 9, October 29, and November 20
5:00-7:00 PM (EST).
Requirements for Online Group Meetings:
We will be using Adobe Connect for your online group meetings. Prior to the first group meeting, you will receive an email with a link to your course’s Adobe Connect room. Adobe Connect does not require any special software. You will simply be going to a website for your group meeting. All you need is a computer with a high-speed internet connection (you may want to avoid using a wireless connection or dial-up connection if possible). Since the online group meetings require interaction from all participants, you will need to obtain a microphone and headphones. Headsets with microphones can be purchased for about $15-$20 at Target, Wal-Mart or all electronic stores. You may be able to borrow a headset from your school. If you have a built-in microphone on your computer, you will still need a headset with a microphone.
In addition to online group meetings, participants read and study online course content, complete required assessment tasks and communicate with the facilitator regularly. Your syllabus will assist you in pacing your work throughout the course. Upon completion of all requirements, participants will receive 20 inservice points.
This module was formerly titled Formative Assessment Process for Differentiating Instruction. Participants will learn and apply each step of the formative assessment process to increase student achievement. Participants will develop skills for using data-based decision making to be responsive to each student’s needs.
The PDA courses, developed by the Florida Department of Education Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services, are included in the Master Inservice Plan in all Florida school districts. If you are not currently employed in a Florida public school district with an approved Florida Department of Education Master Inservice Plan, it is your responsibility, prior to starting the module, to contact your former school district or private school agency to determine if they are able to submit inservice credits to FDOE for you.
