The program offers training to become school evaluators (measurement and evaluation coordinators) and for various evaluation positions within multiple frameworks of the education system (local authority, district, Ministry of Education headquarters, etc.). It deals with two areas of evaluation in education: the first – evaluation of students and the second – evaluation of programs and projects, institutions and systems, personnel, and more.
This two-year program grants a master’s degree in education (M.Ed.) with a specialization in school evaluation. It is intended for those with a bachelor’s or master’s degree with a teaching certificate (preferably with proven teaching experience) who, in addition to continuing their work as teachers or other officials in the school, are interested in fulfilling the role of evaluation coordinator within a school setting or in other frameworks at the locality, district or general education system levels.
It was built on the concept that its graduates must also understand the nature of evaluation, its importance, and its roles in the field of education, as well as get to know the system within which they operate on its pedagogical, organizational, and social aspects.
The program includes 4 areas of study, totaling 25 weekly hrs. (w-hrs.), through which it aims to provide graduates with four specific sets of skills: methodological training in quantitative and qualitative research methods (7 w-hrs.); imparting knowledge, principles, and tools for implementing evaluation and its roles in the education system (9 w-hrs.); deep understanding of learning, teaching and curriculum planning processes (4 w-hrs.); and acquaintance with the social and organizational aspects of the education system in Israel (4 w-hrs.). And in addition, an elective workshop accompanies the final project (1 w-hrs.).
