Schools and teachers assess students in numerous methods, for a diversity of reasons – ranging from extensive classifications of judging, sorting and ranking, to more subtle explanations, determining students’ needs and level of understanding. Educators have distinguished a very strong difference concerning summative assessment and formative assessment; however the distinction is believed to be modified between how data is generated and how assessments are used. This paper will focus on formative assessments, and the difference between formal formative and informal formative assessments. Proceeding to the observation on how assessments can be used in the classroom effectively, the aspects of assessments and procedures to follow. Concluding
Hildebrand & LaHood (2002) noted that each college is responsible for overseeing the process through which the assessment of academic major programs takes place, following existing curriculum and governance procedures. Personal identification with the institution, belief that actions will effect improvement and an institutional climate that supports change will encourage participation in the process. Recognition of the need for external accountability combined with a sense of internal responsibility motivates faculty, students, and administrators to become involved). According to Cox and Godfrey (1997) the importance of measurement, assessment and evaluation techniques to the teaching process relates to the reason for the process of teaching itself. One assumes that students will be different after a unit of work has been taught.
My personal experience as a ‘case study’ to evaluate the validity of either Freire or Anyons theory about the theory of the educational systems and I picked Anyons theory.For a long time education has been imagined as one of the biggest sources and mobility towards success in America. There are people who find education worthless or as Mike Rose said that it is Bullshit and that the education experience they had wasn’t really as well ask they thought it would be or that could have been. Other people think educationist depends on what type of class the person is taking depending on the school the person is in and how the teachers teach is the most important feature of them all. Education nowadays is something that is very important because if you don’t have an education nowadays it is hard to be successful.Anyon and Freire view the schools with the education that they gave, as replications of the bigger social structure. Anyon says that “public schools in complex industrial societies like our own make available different types of educational experience and curriculum knowledge to students in different socials classes;” and In my experience that I’ve had with school is a working class and I support it because it is a good way to teach kids.
CHAPTER 4: RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 4.1. Introduction This research aims at evaluating the impact of the advent of the Open University of Mauritius towards creating adult and lifelong learning opportunities, support and success. The study also intends to examine the student perception about blended learning environments as well as determine whether or not there exists any difference in how students feel about blended learning environments based on generational differences. This chapter provides details regarding the population, instrumentation, data collection procedures, and treatment of data. Though the literature review constitutes the necessary foundation for this research, a set of both deductive and inductive approaches are used therein.
School is a place to study and obtain knowledge, it is true; however, it can hinder the effectiveness of education. The first negative influence that school has done to many students is the way it teaches. The practice of memorizing lectures and information from textbooks is not the most effective way of studying. When students are young, they attend to elementary school and learn fundamental subjects such as basic reading, writing, mathematics,
•At first, I had difficulty in answering the first learning outcome because I didn’t quite understand what being asked. My plan for improvement in the next chapter journals is to try to personifying the chapter and actually think about how it relates to what I believe about teaching and
Test The Test is done to measure the standard to which learning outcomes desired behavior change in the learning objectives have been achieved by the students (Purwanto, 2009, p. 67). As a measure, the test must meet two requirements, namely the validity and reliability. Purwanto (2009, p. 114) describes the validity and reliability as follows. Validity; A test is considered valid if it measures what it is supposed to measure. There are two types of validity, content validity and construct validity.
Educational Research Educational research investigates the behavior of the students, teachers, parents and administration who interact with educational institutions. Learning, attitudes, aptitudes, abilities, interests, practices, processes, emotions etc. come under this category. Educational research helps people to decide which opinions are correct by providing evidences. It also helps to develop better ways to think about the field of education.
For many years now, the CCE programme has been implemented in all schools in Singapore; however, its effectiveness in education has been debated (Singteach.nie.edu.sg, 2014; Alfiekohn.org, 2014). 3. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the CCE curriculum is not effective in fulfilling its aim of nurturing values, competencies and dispositions in students to aid them in becoming people of good character and responsible citizens who contribute to society. 4. Teachers regard CCE as a matter of telling and compelling, rather than allowing students to learn through experiences, hence reducing the efficacy of CCE.
Thus, this kind of teaching-learning system will have its appropriate assessment of student performance. The Higher Education Institute’s (HEI) management systems are set up to support its goals and strategies. There should be appropriate assessment tools to measure performance and to check if the mechanisms, procedures, and process actually deliver the desired quality. Such systems and processes, when properly implemented could lead to quality outcomes as well as sustainable programs and initiatives. For the HEIs, OBE means describing the attributes of their ideal graduates based on their visions and missions as part of their institutional goals or outcomes, and using these as bases for developing specific program
