The Department of Educational Studies and Research (ESR) offers most of its programs at the graduate level. The Research and Educational Foundations (REF) component of the department, however, offers coursework that supports USM's undergraduate research initiative. REF 280 - Quantitative Literacy  and REF 301 - Understanding Research  are to courses that serve that function. ESR also offers coursework that supports undergraduate teacher education in areas of educational foundations and student assessment. Specifically, REF 400 - Public Education in the United States  orients teacher-candidates to the profession and addresses the philosophy, history and sociology of education. REF 469 - Tests and Measurements  introduces teacher-candidates to all forms of student evaluation and assessment, and addresses test construction.

A Gold Card is not required for REF 400  and REF 469 .
