Learning Assessment Strategies My Map To be aware of the assessment tools that are used in the classrooms, I will find interest in observing teachers assessment practices. To hit my Target, I will work my way through these steps:

Step 5. Reflect on your experience. Step 4.confer with your FS teacher your assessment list. Step 3. Describe how each assessment method was used, including your personal observations. Step 2. In your list, classify assessment methods as to conventional and authentic/alternative. Step 1. Observe at least two classes and make a list of the assessment methods used by teachers.

My Tools As I visit schools and observe assessment practices in at least two classes, I documented my observations using the activity form provided for me. For my pen-andpaper test items, I customize a table of specification, and prepare the test material based on the prescription of the school where I do class observation. CLASS 1 OBSERVATION SHEET (To be used during the actual observation of the 1st of 2 classes) Name of School: Linao National High School School Address: Linao North, Tuguegarao City Grade/Year Level: I - 1 ASSESSMENT TOOLS Date of Visit: January 16, 2012 Subject Area: Science DESCRIPTION

(Bulleted description of how the assessment method is used relative to subject matter, levels of learning behavior, length, etc.)

Exercises (GENETUCS)


[13]

Individual Activity Self assessment The teacher distributed a photocopy to each learner The photocopy consists of

Learning Assessment Strategies statements that assess the students inherited traits or physical attributes. The most commonly used for assessment. The teacher gave a 10 item identification test. The teacher implied a test that requires the students knowledge and remembering. Done after the instruction.

Pen-and-Paper Test (QUIZ)

CLASS 2 OBSERVATION SHEET (To be used during the actual observation of the 2nd of 2 classes) Name of School: Cagayan National High School School Address: Linao North, Tuguegarao City Grade/Year Level: II-2 ASSESSMENT TOOLS Date of Visit: January 16, 2012 Subject Area: Biology DESCRIPTION

(Bulleted description of how the assessment method is used relative to subject matter, levels of learning behavior, length, etc.)

Oral Questioning

An assessment tool which gauge the knowledge and skills of the learner. It was executed during discussion. The teacher asks question/s relative to the topic about contraceptives. The learner can determine whether the students are listening at the same time learning.

(Please include your personal observations and comment below the description)

Pen-and-Paper Test

It is the most familiar assessment tool. The teacher gave a 10 item identification test to assess how well the students understand the lesson. I observed that the students understand the lesson presented by the teacher because everyone got high scores.

(Please include your personal observations and comment below the description)

1. Oral Questioning

2. Exercise

The teacher asked question to the students during their discussion to assess their understanding and reasoning skills about the topic. The teacher encouraged the students to express their ideas and thoughts regarding the topic. It was used for self assessment. Every student was given a photocopy which consists of statements that assess their inherited traits and physical attributes.

[15]

Learning Assessment Strategies My Analysis 1. Was there a variety of assessment methods used by the teacher? How relevant as/were the assessment method/s used?

Yes, there was variety of assessment methods used by the teacher simply testing on isolated skill or capabilities by giving them different activities. They engaged students in discourse and social learning and they empowered students by choice to direct their own learning. They give also quiz/test to examine their academic performance. Assessment tools was being used by the teacher as to assess the student learning from the lesson that was being discussed and the assessment tools were relevant for it was based from the objectives of the lesson as well as with interest of the learner. 2. Do you think the expected students learning behaviors indicated in the objectives were properly and appropriately assessed through those assessment methods?

Yes, because exposing students to others with diverse backgrounds and experiences also serve to help students focus on their awareness of themselves. When they see how others are different, students are given reference points or comparative perspectives which sharpen assessment of their own attitudes, values and behaviors. The teacher always consider the objectives of the lesson as to what assessment tool that she is going to use before, during and after discussion.

Learning Assessment Strategies My Reflection Write your personal reflection of thoughts and feelings about the importance in the use of appropriate assessment methods in the classroom, including what students and teachers can gain from appropriate assessment tools.

Assessment is a vital tool used by the teacher in determining if the lesson presented is well transferred to the learner. Assessment is very important thing to consider in education because through assessment you can measure the understanding of the learner based on the lesson presented. As a teacher, you must be fair in assessing your students capability since every learner possesses a different intelligence and learning styles. Various methods should be implemented so that each of your learners expresses what is in their mind. Some students are good in written but then they cannot express their self orally vice versa. So as a teacher, you must consider the weakness and strengths of your learner so that everybody has the opportunity to reveal their potentials or express their thoughts.

My Reflection Write your personal reflection of thoughts and feelings about the importance in the use of appropriate assessment methods in the classroom, including what students and teachers can gain from appropriate assessment tools.

Assessment should be targeted towards different learning styles of students. For example, some students may be great or good in theoretical or knowledge based questions; whereas other may be better at showing that they understand something through practical means like creating something. It is a must for every teacher to use an appropriate and variety of assessment tool in his/her class. And must be correlated and based on the aims and objectives. The teacher has a wide variety of assessment tools to measure learning outcomes. Teacher should give the equal opportunity for the students to interact in the classroom in terms of academic performance. A teacher must give equal chance for the students to express their selves in the classroom.

As individuals develop, there are different opportunities and constraints for learning. Learning is most effective when differential development within across physical, intellectual, emotional, and social domains is taken into account. Students learn best when material is appropriate to their developmental level and is presented in an enjoyable and interesting way. Because individual development varies, achievement in different instructional domains may also vary. Teachers/Educators need to be concerned with facilitating motivation by strategies that enhance learner effort and commitment to learning; and to achieving high standards of comprehension and understanding. Effective strategies include purposeful learning activities, guided by practices that enhance positive emotions and intrinsic motivation to learn, and methods that increase positive learners perception that a task is interesting and personally relevant. Because learners have different strategies, approaches, and capabilities for learning that are function of prior experience. Teachers need to be sensitive to individual differences, in general.

Learning Assessment Strategies My Portfolio Complete the Table on Assessment Methods Write the most appropriate use of each assessment method. To complete the table do not hesitate to do further research.

Assessment Method 1. Written response instruments

Appropriate Use (When to use it) Appropriate for assessing the various levels of hierarchy of educational objectives. Appropriate for efficient and reliable result; allow a wide sampling content. Candidates select the appropriate answer from several possible responses. Many items can be administered during a limited time period; and easy to administer and score. Scoring is objective, measure knowledge keyed to specific learning outcomes and competencies. Candidates select a second statement that best complements with each presented statement. Tend to emphasize factual knowledge, rather than higher thinking skills performance or attitudes. Candidate provides short answers to question or complete sentences. Requires recollection of correct answer. Use to test the students grasp of the higher level cognitive skills. Relate to real world situation. May test several competencies at once. Candidates organize and write responses to problems usually presented in a real-life context. Use to rate products like books, reports, maps, charts, diagram, notebook and etc. need to develop.

Learning Assessment Strategies 3. Performance Tasks (using a microscope, solving Math word problem) a. Performance Checklist Use to determine whether or not an individual because in a certain way when asked to complete a particular task. Provides controlled sample of reallife and work activity. Allows for testing of complex integrated skills. Use to assess the students stock knowledge and determine the students ability to communicate ideas in coherent verbal sentences. Useful supplementary methods when used in conjunction with oral questioning and performance test.
