The Ed.M. in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Educational Research and Assessment equips graduates with skills to read and conduct research in the field of education as well as evaluating educational programs. Particularly in this era of accountability, the program provides students with both qualitative and quantitative skills necessary for data-driven decision making. The Master’s can be completed as a fully online program if desired (see advisor) and can also be completed in conjunction with a Graduate Certificate in Data-Based Decision Making. Thus, the program is ideal for teachers and administrators who want to increase their ability to interpret classroom and schoolwide data, as well as for those who intend to pursue doctoral work or research positions in education.
The Master of Education: Educational Research and Assessment program is 30 credit hours. Those who already have a relevant Master’s degree will take just 12 credits for the certificate. This certificate can also be earned in conjunction with a Master’s Degree in Educational Research.
