The Writing Fluency Activity During the spring, 2014 academic semester at Asia University students from three Freshman English classes were asked to participate in weekly writing activities held in a computer lab on campus. The Freshman English course is a required, year-long four skills English course with an emphasis on speaking and listening in order for students to improve their oral communication skills in English. Secondary to the speaking and listening aims of the course are reading and writing, which are practiced using various methodologies according to the instructor of the course. As mentioned earlier, practicing writing in the Freshman English class is seen by students as more challenging and less enjoyable than practicing speaking
Case Summary Problem Identification For my case study, I chose the second grade case study called “Making Sense of the Problem-Solving RtI Process in Mathematics.” In this article, Miss Concepcion is the second grade math teacher who implements a plan response to intervention in her classroom. Miss Concepcion decides to implement this plan after coming to a quarterly benchmark assessment that only 85% of second graders showed mastery of, and from these same results, it also showed that there were nine second grade students who performed below a 50% on the benchmark, and one of these students was in her class. This students name is Mattie Maddox, she scored a 2 or below out of 4, on each part of the assessment. The benchmark that these second grade students were supposed to master was about adding and subtracting multi-digit whole numbers through three digits and showing that you are fluent in doing so, by using multiple techniques to answer the problems. When Mattie scored less than 50% on each question of the benchmark assessment, she showed Miss Concepcion that she is not yet able to understand the concepts discussed in this benchmark.
Because teacher is a job that people respect and I want to feel finance security. For three exams to get teacher credentials, I have already pass two exams. One is education and education psychology (appendix 12), another is Putonghua credentials (appendix 13) (Scpta, government, 2016). At present, I am preparing the final exam which is 15 minutes’ presentation test and it will be tested in Oct, 2016. There are some positions in school and they are step by step level.
As a new teacher, it has been important to establish many strategies that help my students to become more independent, especially to create an environment in which students can be safe and engaged. Achieving this goal can be measured through misbehavior and positive reward data (for individuals and the whole class), observations from my mentor and administrator, and the organization and visuals seen in my classroom. The first component, misbehaviors and positive reward data, was originally supposed to be measured through class dojo point tracking. Although this data showed initial improvements and a good ratio of positive rewards to consequences, it began to level out and lose effectiveness around November/December. For that reason, I chose to use alternate strategies to motivate the whole class, including a new token system using unifix cubes as a more tangible “point” and using punch-cards for checking in
Classroom-based teacher-made tests might be used to diagnose difficulty or measure achievement in a given unit of a course. Specifying the purpose of and stating its objectives are an essential first step in choosing, designing, revising, or adapting an assessment tool. For this task, I have obtained sample of exam papers for Year 4 from my previous practicum school, SK Cheting, Kuala Berang. The exam papers are divided into 2, Paper 1 and Paper 2. The Paper 1 consists of 40 multiple choice questions whereas Paper 2 consists of 3 sections; Section A, Section B and Section C. I will be evaluating this assessment tool that I have chosen based on four basic principles of language assessment; Reliability, Validity, Washback effects and
In my senior year of high school I decided to enroll as a dual credit student at a local community college. That summer I spent studying for what was sure to be my down fall the math section on the Texas Success Initiative Assessment or the Math TSI. After weeks of cramming the time came and I took the TSI. Sure enough I failed the math portion. It wasn’t much of a surprise many members of my family had to take remedial math.
For the first week of teaching at Ps 200 I had the job of being the assessor. My job consisted of grading the students off a pre-established rubric set by the lead teacher Niko. The students were graded on a scale of 1-4,1 being needs the most improvement in the skill area,or 4 being the student has mastered the skill. As the assessor I am grading the students in three different categories, Cognitive(the students’ mental understanding of the skill ),Affective(how well the students interact with and respect each other), Psychomotor(how well the student performs the skill). To fully assess all 12 students in the three categories it will take the whole class period.
