This course focuses on the principles, development and utilization of conventional assessment tools and new developments in assessment to improve the teaching-learning process. It emphasizes/stresses on the use of assessment of, as and for learning (formative, summative and self-assessment) in measuring knowledge, comprehension and other thinking skills in the cognitive domain, skills in the psychomotor and affective domains. It requires students to experience or go through standard steps in test construction/development for quality assessment and test-item analysis from test results as a source of feedback to intensify teaching process and improve performances and achievements of learners. Also, this course allows the learners to be trained on the application of grading systems and different strategies for communicating assessment results to stakeholders.

This course deals with nature of mathematics, appreciation of its practical, intellectual, and aesthetic dimensions, and application of mathematical tools in daily life. It begins with an introduction to the nature of mathematics as an exploration of patterns (in nature and the environment) and as and application of inductive and deductive reasoning. By exploring these topics, students are encouraged to go beyond the typical understanding of mathematics as merely a bunch of formulas but as a source of aesthetics in patterns of nature, for example, and a rich language in itself(and of science) governed by logic and reasoning. The course proceeds to survey ways in which mathematics provides a tool for understanding and dealing with various aspects of present day living, such as managing personal finances, making social choices, appreciating geometric designs, understanding codes used in data transmission and security, and dividing limited resources fairly. These aspects will provide opportunities for actually doing mathematics in a broad range of exercises that bring out the various dimensions of mathematics as a way of knowing, and test the student’s understanding and capacity.
