Credit Hours MASTER S PROJECT GUIDELINES The project in Assessment and Evaluation is the culminating learning experience for the Master s Degree in Assessment and Evaluation. The project provides you the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills you have learned throughout your coursework. The Masters Project consists of two courses 5100: 654 Master s Project in Assessment & Evaluation: Part 1 and 5100:654 Master s Project in Assessment & Evaluation: Part 2. Each course is semester hours. There are a variety of approaches that you can choose for your project. For example, your project can be an extension and elaboration of a course project, it can be aligned with your professional employment, or you can choose a novel or unique project related to a topic of professional interest. Of greatest importance, however, is that you select a project approach that best aligns with your personal and professional interests. Examples of projects include but are not limited to: Project Focus Evaluation Research Examples Designing and implementing a formative and/or summative evaluation of an education or community-based program Evaluating the a teacher s implementation of an educational program and the program s impact on student outcomes Using secondary data sets to address research questions to inform educational practices and decision-making. Graduate Program in Assessment and Evaluation 4

6 Using ODE data to examine the achievement and growth of Ohio s eight major urban school districts Developing an online questionnaire to collect and interpret data about teacher grading practices Assessment Professional Development Developing or redesigning a comprehensive assessment plan to align with a specific curriculum Developing rating scales that educators could use to assess student participation Developing and implementing a professional development workshop related to an assessment and evaluation topic Offering an on-sight workshop Developing a website of assessment best practices Frequently Asked Questions 1. When should I start to plan for my master s project? You should begin planning for your project during the semester before you intend to enroll in 5100:654. You will work with your program advisor during the initial planning stages. You and your program advisor will discuss the various approaches for completing the project. Ultimately, your decision on which approach to select will be based on your personal and professional interests and goals. You and your program advisor will also discuss which program faculty member will be best suited to guide your project work. 2. What is the difference between my program advisor and my project advisor? Your program advisor was assigned to you when you were admitted to the master s degree program. Your program advisor talked with you about scheduling classes and about the general features and expectations of the program. As you begin work on your project, however, you will benefit most by working with program faculty who have specific expertise in your area of interest. It may be that a faculty member other than your program advisor is better suited to guide your project work. Perhaps you worked on a project in one of your courses that you wish to expand upon for your master s project. It is logical that you continue that work the course instructor. Your program advisor may or may not remain as your project advisor, and this is a decision that will be reached jointly. Once identified, your project advisor will require that you complete and submit a Project Plan. (See Page 20).. What is the Project Reader? The project reader is an individual who has expertise related to your project. You will submit your project final draft to both your project advisor and your project reader. Whereas your project advisor provide substantive advice and feedback throughout your project, the reader provides general feedback at the final stage of your project. The reader may or may not be your program advisor or may be an individual outside of the program. As you approach the final stages of your project you and your project advisor will identify a project reader. Graduate Program in Assessment and Evaluation 5

7 4. Can I work on my master s project in the summer? The viability of working on your project during the summer semesters will depend on the availability of your project advisor and the nature of your project. For example, a project in which you plan to develop and implement a series of professional development workshops may not be well-suited for summer. In contrast, a project in which you design and develop an assessment plan may be better suited for summer work. Ultimately, the timeline for completing your project is something that you and your project advisor will develop. 5. Can I complete my master s project in one semester? The master s project requires comprehensive and in-depth work, and it is impossible to predict the exact amount of time you will need to complete the project. If your project represents unique work that you are starting from scratch, it is highly likely that you will need two semesters to complete the project. If your project is an extension and elaboration of work that you may have started as a class project, you may be able to complete the project in a shorter period of time. For example, if you choose to extend and implement the Evaluation Project you created in 5100:65 Practical Applications of Educational Evaluation, your project advisor may determine that your master s project can be completed in a shorter period of time. Keep in mind, however, that the Master s Degree in Assessment & Evaluation is a 0-hour program. If you are able to complete your project in a single semester, you and your program advisor will agree on an appropriate elective course to meet the 0-hour requirement for graduation. 6. Will I need IRB Approval? IRB stands for Institutional Review Board, and it is an entity at the University of Akron that oversees that research and evaluation projects meet ethical standards. You will learn more about the IRB and you will become CITI certified as part of your master s degree course work. Whether your project will require IRB approval depends entirely on the nature of your project. Your project advisor will guide you through the process of determining the need for IRB approval and the completion and submission of IRB applications and forms. Your project advisor is required to cosign IRB applications. 7. What materials will I submit when I complete the master s project? The materials that you submit will vary depending upon your project. For example, if you conduct an evaluation study, you will submit the final evaluation report. If you complete a research study, you will submit the research report. If you develop professional development materials, you would submit those materials. Your project advisor may request that you submit a narrative paper in which you summarize the work you have completed and the process you used; or, your project advisor may request that you make an informal presentation about your project. Ultimately, the format of the final project will vary based on the nature of the project. 8. Who grades my master s project? Your master s degree project will be evaluated by your project advisor and your project reader. The project is graded Satisfactory (credit) or Unsatisfactory (no credit). You will receive sufficient support and guidance from your project advisor as you complete the project. Graduate Program in Assessment and Evaluation 6

8 ELECTRONIC PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES (For Master s Program) This description is organized in three main sections: I. Activating Your Tk20 Account II. Constructing Your Electronic Portfolio III. Submitting Your Portfolio for Review I. Using Tk20 For Your Electronic Portfolio TK20 is an electronic portfolio system that the College of Education uses in multiple ways. In the master s degree program in Assessment and Evaluation, TK20 is used as a way to track your successful completion of course related learning objectives and to construct your program-level portfolio. The portfolio is a required component of the master s degree. Tk20 requires a one-time fee of $100. The fee should be automatically charged to your tuition, and your Tk20 account is active for 50 years. If you do not see Tk20 charged to your tuition bill, then and report this discrepancy. You will need to provide your name and student ID number. You are responsible in the first semester of your graduate studies to activate your Tk20 account. Your courses will automatically be uploaded to your account. If you are not sure if you have a Tk20 account or do not know your User ID and password, please contact Brenda Reichert at Tutorials for logging in to your account and uploading documents can be found at II. Constructing Your Electronic Portfolio Your electronic portfolio will be stored in Tk20 and will consist of: (a) the key artifacts from each of your core classes, and (b) a reflective narrative. You are NOT required to submit artifacts from the foundations courses. If you are prompted to submit artifacts from those courses, please contact the instructor for the course. Key Artifacts Of the 12 required artifacts identified in Table 1, at least 10 must be rated at the Acceptable or Accomplished level, with no more than 2 rated at the Needs Improvement level. Table.

15 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1. How long does it take to complete the program? It depends on the number of credits you are willing and able to take each semester, including fall, spring and summer sessions. It also depends on the number of previously taken graduate level credits that will transfer into the program. Most of our students take 6 semester hours while working full-time. If two courses (6 semester hours) are taken per semester for the Master s Certificate, students can complete in -4 semesters depending on when you begin the program (summer, fall, or spring). If 2 courses are taken per semester for the master s degree, students can complete in 5-6 semesters depending on how long your master s project takes to complete. 2. How many credits can I transfer to The University of Akron for this program? Only 1/ of your coursework may be transferred from another institution, so it is possible to transfer 9 semester hours. Typically the main coursework that is transferred is foundations courses. Only course work for which you have received a letter grade can be considered for transfer. Workshops and pass/fail courses are not accepted. Ultimately, it is up to your advisors to determine if course work from another university aligns with program requirements, and your advisor is likely to request a syllabus and course description to make this decision.. What are some professional organizations that relate to this field that I could join? American Evaluation Association American Educational Research Association*Several assessment and evaluation related sigs available to join.
