These topics should be given emphasis during the lecture. Item analysis workshop can be scheduled before the start of the semester.
  • Communicate course concerns with their instructors.

Recommendations for students:

  • Attend class regularly and be responsible for their own learning.
  • Communicate course concerns with their instructors.
