by Michael Rodriguez, Associate Professor, Educational Psychology, CEHD
Professor Michael Rodriguez's work with USAID established a national academic content and achievement standards for the K-12 education system, a national assessment systems to monitor performance in Reading and Mathematics, and a research agenda to understand variation in achievement across Guatemala.
His current project focuses on the professional development and policy design to strengthen the capacity of schools and teachers to implement the national standards and to meet the learning needs of diverse children. The presentation will focus on the challenges in meeting these goals with attention on issues of assessment and accountability in the face of significantly limited opportunity to learn.
