Certificate in Assessment of Learning and Cognitive Development
The Advanced Graduate Certificate (AGC) in Assessment of Learning and Cognitive Development emphasizes understanding the individual learner and his/her learning and cognitive growth. Students enrolled in this program acquire skills in the assessment of learning, cognitive abilities, and academic performance.
This AGC is for educators who already have a master's degree and some experience with assessment and applying psychology to education and schooling. This AGC is not designed for Missouri educator certification, but the AGC in Assessment of Learning and Cognitive Development is especially helpful for those who wish to work as assessment coordinators, educational diagnosticians, or psychoeducational testers.
This eighteen credit hour advanced certificate is for those who wish to make an even greater contribution at their workplace. Graduate students are encouraged to assume advocacy roles, to participate in professional organizations, and to contribute to professional conferences and publications.
