Janelle Smith ED-CIFS 329 Assessment Management Protocol Plan September 10, 2015 Classroom assessment involves the professional decision of the teacher to determine how to implement assessment, what should be assessed, and when should assessment occur. Teachers must be able to interpret each students’ unique learning abilities in ways that are credible, fair, and free from bias. Possible factors to consider when creating these multiple formats for assessments include gender, ethnicity, culture, socio-economic backgrounds, and special needs. Each and every student in the classroom should be give the same opportunity to display their strengths. And it is important for teachers to properly manage an assessment plan that will benefit students, as well as the teachers, in the classroom. Eventually, a well-constructed assessment plan will be able to contribute to the development of lifelong learners within the teacher and the students.
Performance evaluations are a very important part of a business organization and places promotion and retain ability in the hands of the worker. According to Robbins and Judge,” Evaluations provide input into important decisions such as promotions, transfers, and terminations. Evaluations also identify training and development issues.”(pg.595 2009). There are several different theories and ways to conduct performance evaluations such as behaviorally anchored rating scales (BARS), critical incidents, graphic rating scales, Forced comparison, group order rankings and individual ranking. Each of these systems can be used on their own for ranking employee performance but some organizations use a combination of systems.
These competencies are used to promote excellence within the advanced role as a nurse educator. Also, they help to identify the specialty area of nursing education and allow for a platform in which faculty are able to demonstrate and explore the entirety of their role. The nurse educator is equipped to prepare students in the academic or clinical setting. The curriculum within the nurse educator program is designed to integrate clinical foundations with advanced nursing concepts. Together, these concepts result in focused courses for the nurse educator profession (NLN, 2017). In my perspective, nurse educators are creative in their approach to combine their past experiences and passion for educating students as they educate and mentor future
Assessing is a crucial component of education that informs teachers on individual development and understanding (Booker, Bond, Sparrow
In TASC Model Core Teaching Standards The key themes that run through the In TASC standards aim at improving learning and include; Personalized Learning for Diverse Learners: This requires teachers to have knowledge and skills to customize learning for all learners irrespective of their usually diverse backgrounds and differences.

This is why assessments should be an ongoing process throughout the learning experience. Assessments are not only there to assess a learner to sit an exam to test a learner’s knowledge of the subject matter but to:
Ch. 2 – Who are the various users of assessment and its results? What specific instructional decisions can be made based on assessment results? Why must we build balanced assessment systems to support the instructional programs we offer students? This chapter nails down the purpose of assessing, which is gathering information to inform teachers of students of their instruction and learning, respectively. In this way, assessment is individualized to each student and classroom, and because all students/classes are different, it should inform the teachers of what is working or not working in the classroom, which should then influence some sort of change to instruction. This chapter also talks about the different levels of assessment – from the individuals
Assessment Interview Randall Cummins MTE/559 August 10, 2015 Richard Mather Assessment Interview Assessment is an imperative part of the learning process. According to Stiggins and Chappuis (2012), “Assessment is, in part, the process of gathering evidence of student learning to inform instructional decisions. This process can be done well or poorly.” To learn more about assessment I sat down for a one on one interview with Jim Libretti. Coach Libretti is the head coach of the freshman football team at Paradise Valley High School. Also, he is a math teacher.
6. Assessment should be integrated into the teaching and learning cycle. Assessment needs to be an ongoing, integral part of the teaching and learning cycle. It must allow teachers and students themselves to monitor learning. From the teacher
Self-Evaluation This paper seemed very easy to me while I was writing it. After reading the response on the rough draft, I have realized that I need to spend more time proofreading and editing my papers. I thought I did very well on this paper but I was wrong. It seems like every time something seems very easy, I usually get a poor grade on it. After viewing the tips that were left on my paper I have found out that I need to work on many things. Some of these things include the length of my paragraphs, repetitive use of one specific word, adding more personal experiences into my writing, and organizing my thoughts effective enough to where they reach the page requirements of papers. I found these tips very helpful because it has been quite a while since I have written an actual paper. I appreciate that I have a teacher that will actually take their time on each and every paper and leave comments on how to improve that
Artifact 3: Wordsplash Assessments are vital to the educational process. They provide feedback about what the students know and what they may need to learn in order to obtain the content within a given curriculum. It provides teachers with a glimpse into the student’s readiness on a particular topic or subject. One of the six key principles of having an effective differentiated classroom is having a formative assessment that informs teachers on the effectiveness of their teaching. It also provides teachers with the readiness levels of their students and shows them exactly where the students’ readiness, interests, and learning profile needs really are (Tomlinson, 2014).
Assessing is a major priority in the school system because this is the only way principals are aware of the progress their students and teachers are producing. It is recommended that principals meet monthly with other administrators to stay up to date on the current changes in the curriculum, instruction, and assessments. The school leadership teams must ensure that they are choosing instructional works that have high success rates for enhancing student achievement. If the data results from the assessment show that the majority of students are not producing learning gains, the school’s principal should sit down with the teacher to discuss and reevaluate the lessons that are being taught.
Assessment is a tool that begins and ends successful teaching. At the beginning it establishes what is currently known and at the end it establishes what has been learnt as the result of the planned curriculum.
The article from Angelo and Cross, while dated, is a valuable lesson and read for educators (and myself). Many of the concepts covered in this article highlight the ways that assessment can help college teachers gain useful feedback and analyze student learning. The article encourages educators to review the central
During my experience at Challenge Academy in Fall 2015 I heavily relied on continuous formative assessment to determine my student’s attentiveness and level of comprehension. At the beginning of each session I would have the student explain what she had previously covered to check her understanding and we would also discuss what areas she struggled with or enjoyed. Throughout lessons my student would respond to verbal questions I asked, get feedback on her answers through the comprehension check and quiz questions on Gradpoint, and demonstrate her understanding to me through drawings and work. After my student took her post-test we would take time to reflect on her progress and discuss a plan for how to continue improving.
