Thursday, July 14, 2016

Congratulations James Rempel (MEd ’16) on receiving the Canadian Association of Foundations of Education (CAFE) Outstanding Thesis Award for 2016.

“My supervisor, Amy von Heyking, gave the thesis a foundation and wings with her passionate commitment to historical studies in education. I am also deeply grateful to the outstanding Curriculum and Assessment Masters program at the University of Lethbridge, a powerful collection of courses and professors that empowered me to undertake this endeavor.”

Some Reckoning of Gains is Made: A Historical Inquiry into Assessment in Child-centred Curricula, is an exemplary study that addresses a compelling, significant, and relevant research question: “What were Alberta Education’s expectations for assessment in Enterprise curricula from 1936 to 1950, and to what extent did Alberta educators implement those expectations?” ~ CAFE
