2.1 School-Based Assessment As what Jamil (2005) explicated, to attain information about students’ learning, we can use measurement, evaluation or assessment. Teachers play an important role in sensing the development, abilities, progress and attainment of students. Not only that, teachers also decide which learning outcomes to be assessed, planned and build instrument, perform an assessment, record his assessment, analyse assessment information, report the finding and conduct the necessary follow-up actions. Heritage, Kim, Vendlinski & Herman (2009) described assessment as a systematic process to incessantly gather evidence and provide feedback about learning (p. 24). Assessment is one of the ways teacher can monitor students’ learning also provides data to teachers that can be used to encourage students to be self-reflective about their learning development (Black, 2003).
I should establish goals, purpose, and interactive instruction when working with students. I should be able to clarify confusion and provide differentiated tasks for students in my future teaching practices. As a teacher, I would offer models of behaviour; for instance, presenting students that creating an anchor chart helps to remember the course materials. Teachers should respond flexibly to students’ response and encourage students to self-monitor. I believe that it is essential to adapt independent learning skills in my future classroom since independent learning help students to improve their academic performances, increase motivation, confidence, and self-assessment
Linking instruction and assessment is critical to effective learning. Educators should provide students with various options for learning that include: different ways to learning (style and time), di... ... middle of paper ... ...re provided with ample opportunities to demonstrate their abilities. MI theory is used as formal and informal assessment in the classroom to allow students to be grasp and understand concepts. The use of multiple types of assessments in the classroom yield richer and more qualitative information about a child's achievement. If the ultimate goal is student learning, then there is a place for both standardized testing and authentic assessment using the MI theory in today's classroom.
Using high low high checks students’ knowledge about the main objective that is being covered. In the article Formative Assessment at Work in the Classroom the author states the importance of being precise in describing what we want students to understand (Baron 51). It is a formative assessment which gives students a chance to share with the teacher what they need help with. This also informs teachers what information they need to go over again. And lastly an important part of teaching is building a relationship with students and creating a positive environment for students to learn in.
Thus, the evaluators' role is to make the evaluation process a meaningful experience through giving useful feedback on classroom needs and the opportunity to learn new teaching techniques in order to make changes in the classroom. This paper includes a description of an observation instrument that I have used to write a reflective report on two teachers' classrooms management , and professional development plan. 2. Observation tool I chose Classroom Management Instrument that is adapted from an Instrument for evaluation classroom management by Luisa Mir from the Department of Educational Sciences at the University of the Balearic Islands. The original instrument has two columns: criteria and degrees of performance (see figure 1).I added some changes to this instrument.
Learning theories provide instructional designs with instructional strategies and techniques which facilitate learning. Each learning perspective discussed in this essay is in terms of specific interpretation of the learning process. The specific learning theories in this essay are behaviorism, constructivism and cognitivism. The essay will compare and contrast how learning occurs in each theory, the roles of the teacher and the student, the curriculum and learning goals, and lastly, assessments. Behaviorism focuses on behaviors and not cognitive or abstract activities.
Implementing Using collegial coaching, teacher can also learn from each other and provide positive feedback and reflect to make it better the next time. I believe the two models that I am interested in implementing next year are instructional and collegial coaching. Both models implement a pre-conference, observation, and post conference. According to Knight (2008), Coaches must offer positive feedback, support, and build positive relationships with mutual respect to enhance learning. Personally, I think that collegial coaching is mainly for novice teachers and emphasized by Venison (2010d).
It also serves as reference of Education students in the study of teaching performance and its effect. Teachers guide have been prepared for teachers in Grade I and VII in the K to 12 Curriculum and the same will be done for succeeding grades. Likewise, there are available teacher's manual, textbook and supplementary materials for use by the teachers in the different year levels. It identifies the teacher's quality in terms of specific qualification and characteristic. To make the work of teachers easier in making lesson plan and lessen the time in writing a Daily Lesson Plan, the Department of Education release a Department Order No.
As I was coming to a close in the interview I did thank Ms. Green for her time and I asked her is there anything she would recommend for me and she said, “You are a good teacher and I have watched you as a teacher and you are doing a good job with the children. You use the creative curriculum and you follow all the objectives and dimensions for teacher strategy gold. You assess the children when needed and you look for the indicators on teacher strategy gold. I will add that you need to be more firm with the children so the children will know you are a serious teacher”. I thanked her for the feedback and thank her again for her time.
When we working with students with IEPs or 504 plan in the classroom. We should be flexible with different needs of students. Modifying lesson plans, worksheets and assessment methods will help students have better comprehension with class and help teachers to get the most accurate data about their students. Book citation: "To get the most accurate data about what students understand and can do, assessments should not offer only one means of response but should provide multiple opportunities in varied media for learners to demonstrate skills and express themselves." Video citation: in the video, the teacher shared her idea of assessment after she learned UDL.
