Educational Assessments I | EDTH.X303
This course introduces the assessment tools and procedures frequently used in educational therapy settings. In addition to classroom activities, you’ll gain field experience using specific assessment instruments. You’ll have access to a limited number of assessment instruments and will be assisted in your fieldwork placement.

- Explain the purposes of formal and informal assessment
