The page that follows will break down the task in detail, so that you can see how the above learning goals come together in this one project. Your instructor will guide you in breaking down the task throughout the semester.

If you do not have real data from your own assessments implemented in the field, you will be using simulated assessment data provided by your instructor or mentor teacher. These data will be necessary to complete all three tasks in this project. In some cases, your instructor may ask you to complete them in a different order from those listed here, depending on how data will be analyzed or the project written out.
