Abstract: The purpose of the roundtable will be to discuss the promises and pitfalls of three commonly used degree program formats. As a springboard for discussion the facilitators will present a successful hybrid program being used in a master’s degree program training teachers in the area of educational assessment, testing, data-driven decision making, and use of evidence-based practices. The program features a mix of face-to-face courses and asynchronous on-line courses (a hybrid degree program) which allows the students to complete their degrees within fifteen months.
