In order to make their learning and assessment ongoing and not episodic, I develop an appropriate curriculum, planning lessons to meet students' learning needs and using inferences about student progress to inform my teaching. I make lessons and assessments a linked series of activities undertaken over time, so that progress is directed towards the intended course goals and the achievement of relevant
The article concludes, teachers do not need to resemble their students in order to teach them; however, teachers must find ways to effectively relate lessons and themselves to students. The development of familiarity and awareness can create a better teaching experience and learning opportunities for students. Once material is more relatable and students are more engaged, teachers can then work toward assessing what students are actually learning in the
Field Hocky Evaluation. Why is peer assessment used? Peer assessment is used to help develop your skill by getting positive and negative feed back and you can use what you have been told to change make better what people have already. For example if someone said to a person “ You need to learn how to flip the stick around to keep control of the ball” you could take that and maybe get someone to film you and you could see how you control the ball and change it to make yourself better at the game.
For example, this form of assessment can be used on a larger scale for the purpose of identifying where a school stands in comparison to other schools. Finally, in the film study option I witnessed how Assessment for Learning, or summative assessment was applied to student presentations. In this scenario summative assessment was use in performance task. The form of assessment I observed was task specific, meaning students were asked to complete a task that will test a specific skills. Often this form of assessment is accompanied by a rubric, which teachers can use as a guide for grading, and students can use a check list they can refer to while completing the
I incorporate this learned experience daily and learn through each success and discovered area of improvement. Addressing my students needs using a variety of assessment tools has been a beneficial practice to help guide instruction. Students have different learning styles and their strengths and weaknesses are not always apparent using the same methods of assessment. Utilizing formative, standards(goal)-based, anecdotal, observational and benchmarks has driven my instructional programs. The combination of different assessments provides me with a multi-dynamic perspective of my students allowing me to better understand their strengths, weakness and academic needs.
Additionally, the tasks need to be constructive and interlinked and provide a challenge to the students while also acting as a motivation factor. The adopting of effective teaching to match the personal strengths of the students ensures that a student’s learning outcome is achieved Holistic assessment should be encouraged to understand what the learner has captured on a learning
One of the key to the successful teaching of physical education is the use of a broad range of approaches and methodologies. As it is acknowledged that schools, classes and teachers will vary, some methods will suit particular circumstances better than others, and the nature of the strands themselves necessitates the use of a variety of teaching methods. There is a need to examine the teaching methods which will best enhance the achievement of the objectives, taking factors such as the content and context of the lesson into account, as well as the needs of the learner. Teaching means sharing, guiding, changing behavior, impressing, disciplining, counseling, directing and inspiring. Good teaching is a process of producing end products of
In methods developed by Slavin (1994, 1995), students can earn certificates or other recognition if their average team scores on quizzes or other individual assignments exceed a pre-established criterion (Kagan, 1992). Methods developed by Johnson and Johnson (1994) and their colleagues at the University of Minnesota often give students grades based on group performance, which is defined in several different ways. The
It is my goal to make sure students are not just memorizing facts, but are actually understanding. They should be able to take the lesson and apply it to other areas of their lives. I believe students need to be assessed frequently and routinely. The students need accurate and effective feedback, so they can make any necessary adjustments.
All students deserve to be treated fairly as individuals. When considering the diversity of the class members, we will celebrate the uniqueness that the differences contribute. Because I have high expectations that all my children can be successful, adjustments may be necessary because everyone is not the same (Burden, 2017, p. 115). It is vital that a spirit of understanding and edification is active amongst the students and from the teacher (Romans 14:19, King James Version) to produce fruits of mutual respect: reduced bias, positive academic outcomes, enhanced problem solving, and healthy group dynamics (Cousik, 2015, p. 54). For differences that stem from culture, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, the adjustments will involve bridging the cultural gap between the students’ diversity and the curriculum.
