Requirements for Online Group Meetings:
We will be using Zoom for your online group meetings. Prior to the first group meeting, you will receive an email with a link to your course’s Zoom Link. You will need a computer with high-speed internet connection and a headset with a microphone.
In addition to online group meetings, participants read and study online course content, complete required assessment tasks and communicate with the facilitator regularly. Your syllabus will assist you in pacing your work throughout the course. Upon completion of all requirements, participants will receive 60 inservice points.
This course enables educators to develop, increase and demonstrate knowledge and skills in identifying the purposes, legal and ethical principles, appropriate formal and informal instruments, and alternate strategies for the assessment and evaluation of students with disabilities. Course emphasis includes interpretation and application of assessment results.
The PDA courses, developed by the Florida Department of Education Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services, are included in the Professional Learning Catalog in all Florida school districts. If you are not currently employed in education in Florida, it is your responsibility, prior to starting the course, to contact your former school district or private school agency to determine if they are able to submit inservice credits to FDOE for you.
