From the very beginning of the course, teachers should begin to analyse their learners through initial assessment methods. The assessments best suited to guide improvements in student learning are quizzes, tests, writing assignments, and other assessments such as a group activity. These can easily give the teacher/tutor an insight into the learning needs of the learners. Also
I use various forms of formal and informal assessments within my lessons and my classroom. I use pretests, observation checklists, student check-ins, student conferences, student observations, student conversations/discussions, unit tests, Fountas and Pinnell Tests, NWEA score, rubrics, and posttests. I am always checking in with my students because I want my instruction to be purposeful and meaningful for my students. I use my assessments to guide and adapt my instruction as well as my lesson plans.
Assessment opportunities should be created during each lesson in an informal way. This can be through having a conversation with a learner about what has happened during the lesson and asking some key questions to see if they are able to show that they have understood and therefore, the objectives have been met.
I will use a variety of Formative Assessments before, during, and at the end of the class to check for understanding and I will use the Exit Ticket as a final assessment.
Through the identification of these assessment methods, I will analyse their purpose and the role that they play in my learner’s development; and how these are used to identify learner progress and confirm their knowledge and understanding. I will explore theories and principals of assessment, covering formative and
Assessments are the process of evaluating an individual’s learning. They involve generating and collecting evidence of a learner’s attainment of knowledge and skills and judging that evidence against defined standards. Formative Assessments (quizzes and practical tests) are used to
Assessments are the way to find out if learning has actually taken place. Enabling us, as tutors, to see if objectives have been met.
Means of Assessment (Describe briefly here, and attached below in each lesson): After you describe your assessment, mention how you will differentiate for a student with special needs (e.g., struggling reader, English language learners): The students will be assessed on the 13 colonies by presenting to the class the information they found on their assigned colony and completing a foldable graphic organizer. For the French and Indian War students will be assessed by being given a reflective worksheet where they are asked to reflect on what they learned about the French and Indian War. The lesson over the Stamp Act will include a game that serves as the formative assessment. Day 5 will cover the Boston Massacre. The students will be given a reading for homework and then will answer questions that go along with the reading. On the last day, after discussing the Boston Tea Party, the students will be given homework. The homework is a worksheet answering questions over the Boston Tea Party. Finally, we will be giving a summative assessment. The assessment includes creating an interactive timeline where students will have to draw in the major events we have talked about. Once they have
Assessment is carried out through checks throughout the course, and at end of course. activities can help the learner to see their development whilst allowing the Assessor to give valuable feedback when appropriate. This is to measure the learners understanding of the subject set by the criteria.
Describe, use and evaluate two different assessment activities used to check the learning of either individuals or a group of learners. Analyse the purpose of assessment and produce a written justification of your chosen assessment method. Use an extract from your teaching practice portfolio and reflect on how your feedback has informed your learners progress and achievement and how feedback from others has informed your own professional practice.
Timing accommodations: allow students to take more time to complete a task, provide extra time to process oral information and
There are several kinds of assessment carried out during a student’s learning. These include the placement assessment, formative assessment, and summative assessment. Learners coming into the kindergarten class are often given a pre test or a placement assessment to evaluate what the learner may already know or think about content that is to be
