Those in this degree come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but have the common thread of questioning status quo and striving to explore ‘what works’ in order to improve our educational system. This program is very practitioner-focused so you’ll learn quantitative and qualitative methods along with ways to combine these. There is a strong focus on improvement and evaluation of current practices, programs and policies. You will also learn how to analyze quantitative and qualitative data, including how to take information in from large scale assessments to include teacher voice and the needs of schools.
