It also examines the assessment process, and product and process measures, including reflective assessment. The course concludes by examining benefits and concerns with inclusion and collaboration along with a description of some excellent program options being utilized in today?s schools and communities. * NOTE - Payment for TIDE/USF courses is a two-step process.
