This course is an advanced thematic seminar where students reflect on current research in education covering topics related to educational measurement and assessment. The purpose of this course is to provide an opportunity for students to actively engage in the evaluation of empirical research, literature reviews, and archival sources, and to consider the implications of research on educational practice. The synergy between research-transfer to practice and research motivated by practice-needs is highlighted with this format. There will be an emphasis on looking at the intersection of the various subfields in education research to redefine issues. The course encourages a wide exposure of approaches, views, and influences in education, by having an expert and/or practitioner in the field moderate each topic discussion. Students will be given the opportunity to develop ideas about topics and to communicate these ideas to both academic and diverse audiences.
