Assessment of Learning and Cognitive Development

As a teacher, you know how important it is for children to get a quality education. You also know that success doesn’t always come easily. Students with learning disabilities face special obstacles, but you can help them progress through compassion and a deeper understanding of their needs. With our Advanced Graduate Certificate (AGC) in Assessment of Learning and Cognitive Development, you’ll be prepared to help these students succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

Our 18-credit-hour certificate program is designed for educators who already have a master’s degree and some experience with educational psychology. With an emphasis on understanding each student as an individual, you’ll learn how to assess a child’s learning style, cognitive abilities and academic performance.

Upon graduation, we encourage you to pursue a position as an assessment coordinator, educational diagnostician or psychoeducational tester, assume advocacy roles, participate in professional organizations and contribute to professional conferences and publications.

This advanced certificate does not include Missouri educator certification. Rather, it is for teachers like you who wish to make an even greater difference in the lives of students with learning challenges. Apply today.
