There remains much to be learned about how education related to the areas of classroom assessment and program evaluation. In the area of classroom assessment, we are examining how to best teach pre-service teachers and expand thinking about assessment. Similarly, in the field of program evaluation, we wonder how university courses can contribute to the development of essential competencies for evaluators? Examining assessment and evaluation education allows me to work with others to contribute to the improvement of teaching and learning.
