It’s no secret that implementing Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) in your classroom helps to enhance the science in agriculture for both you and your students. By placing agricultural principles and ideas under a microscope – both literally and figuratively – students are able to think, inquire, and achieve at higher levels in your classroom.

 

To help aid in the learning process in your classroom, CASE has designed End of Course (EoC) Assessments to be implemented with each of its courses. These assessments provide CASE teachers with the opportunity to set benchmarks for learning, then assess and track each student’s progress.

 

Two versions of each exam are available for teachers to use as pre-test/post-test options, or however they feel appropriate for their classroom setting. With a CASE Online subscription, teachers are also given access to an open database of questions, which are aligned with the course concepts. This database of questions allows teachers to develop mid-terms and other exams throughout a CASE course – a great way to check for student learning along the way!

 

“CASE exams are designed to challenge the thinking of students,” said Dr. Dan Jansen, CASE Project Director. “There are no easy or obvious answers, even though most questions are in a multiple choice format. CASE exams are designed just as the daily lessons are – to inspire critical thinking and problem-solving.”

 

It is more important now than ever to track student learning, so that administrators and parents are able to see the value of what is being taught in the classroom. With the use of CASE EoCs, agriculture teachers are able to show the impact of their curriculum and how agricultural science helps students better understand scientific concepts through a non-biased standardized testing option. In many cases, students are also able to earn college credits with articulating institutions by passing CASE EoCs. 

 

Here’s a quick look at the performance data collected for the CASE EoCs last year:

Interested in adding CASE End of Course Assessments to your classroom? CASE now offers a new purchase option for EoCs. Teachers can now purchase just the assessments separate from the entire CASE Online subscription package. Check out the CASE Online Ordering Guide or contact Sara Cobb for more information about this option.
