There are several approaches to interpreting assessment results; teachers and trainers should choose those most appropriate one for them in decision making. One common approach is to compare students against their peers. But often it's more appropriate to base a judgment on a standard .This standards-based approach is particularly appropriate when the student must meet certain criteria in order to progress to the next course or be certified. 7. Evaluate the outcomes of the assessments.
There are different strategies that can be used by the teachers for effective class management among which the most significant is clearly setting out the format of lessons. This is done with the help of setting objectives and aims, giving regular positive feedback, reviewing the learning outcomes and giving an in depth summary and final exercise to the students. While on the other hand, the teacher can also make use of rubrics for understanding the abilities of students. The teachers can also make use of self-reflection as the strategy for class management because it helps the students in analysing their own learning and development abilities. With the help of this strategy, the teacher would be able to determine the pros and cons of each
It is prepared for students to self-assess if they meet each criterion, a vital self-scaffolding technique. Not only that but most often the criteria are linked one another, hence they formulate the learning. Holton & Clarke (2006) highly recommends to empower the students to develop their own problem solving skills, with this in mind, the first process success criterion encourages students to analyse the question and get a greater picture before they start solving it. This is transferable skill that can be applied with any
The second standard in the InTASC standards is Learning Differences. It is stated as follows: “The teacher uses understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures and communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.” In this rationale, I will explain why it is important to know and understand this standard and how it can help me be a better teacher. I understand that all students are different. I will learn everything I can about my future students, so I can know how to teach for them. I will teach to diverse cultures and communities to which my students belong.
According to Duffy (2004) it is important for the mentor to facilitate learning needs and assessment by giving the student the opportunity to reflect on their learning needs and assess themselves. It is also arguable that it is important for a student to identify their own learning needs and self-assessment but the mentor needs to adhere to assessment process in order to provide fair and accurate assessment (Walsh 2014). The most important role of a mentor is to assess the progress of a student accurately and identify the learning needs and problems which the student is encountering on a placement at an early stage. (Philips et al 2000). To assess accurately and holistically a mentor should be able to assess the student’s competency through measurable assessment tools and to do assessment process accurately (Embo et al 2015).
(ProCon.org, 2015) Finally, if the teaching to be tested is really occurred, it can be beneficial to student too. As stated before, standardized tests focus on fundamental concepts that student should learn. So, if teachers actually cover those contents in their teaching, then students will get what they are expected to
This goes beyond providing a wide range of manipulatives for students to choose from (which is beneficial) but tasks teachers with identifying what types of manipulatives lend themselves well to specific concepts, or the idea that tasks and tools go hand in hand. In the future this knowledge will inform my decisions about how to best approach new concepts and what I can do to help set my students up for success. As a teacher, having a variety of manipulatives at your disposal gives you the ability to give individual students the type of support they need to understand ideas and achieve goals; what works for one student might not work for another but having multiple options for them to choose from and connect with makes math concepts much more
When a student displays appropriate behavior the teacher should recognize their action. By stating a positive comment, a student will continue to exhibit the desirable behavior. Teachers should recognize a students positive behavior A procedure prevents a student from misbehaving Teachers say positive comments Teachers demonstrate positive actions Students needs
As the education coordinator, I will first approach my subject matter as a system itself. I will design my materials first by identifying their purpose, then second their function and finally deriving the structure of the educational materials from the necessary functions. In developing educational materials, I will also want to familiarize myself with my students as I know that according to communication models they may interpret what I communicate differently than I intend due to how they “decode” (Nelson, Staggers, 2014). Once I have an understanding for what my students know, I will move forward by assessing their learning styles as I believe that is an incredibly valuable thing for an educator as well as a student to know. Now that I know what my students know and how
In all IEPs there need to be goals set of for the student to work towards, which will help them meet the standards of the general curriculum, and aid in them improving upon their disability and hopefully reaching independence eventually. UDL is supposed to help the IEP team put together goals for the student to meet, specifically goals that are related to problem areas of the student, and that give the student a chance to learn what they need just like other students. This section in the IEP is very important because it lists out specific goals with great detail that Stacy must work on, including how she is supposed to meet these goals, how she will be evaluated for the goals, and what exactly has to be done in order for her to have completed the goal. These goals will really benefit Stacy because she will improve in the areas these goals are focusing on, and she will be able to keep up with the general curriculum in her own way without falling behind or struggling because of her learning
Secondly, the Payment teacher data artifact helps to understand the intention of the students who remain in the course. After an orientation, students are familiar regarding standardized testing and other prerequisites and course requirements. If students will be tested using a standardized instrument the teacher will have less flexibility in choosing the material proposed to be covered in a course. In order to achieve maximum success on the test, course objectives and lessons will need to closely align with the intended test students will
