3. Assessment and accountability Foster professional growth, personal development and accountability through support of students in practice. Demonstrate a breadth of understanding of assessment strategies and the ability to contribute to the total assessment process as part of the teaching team. Provide constructive feedback to students and assist them in identifying future learning needs and actions. Manage failing students so that they may either enhance their performance and capabilities for safe and effective practice or be able to understand their failure and their implications of this for their future.
Reflecting on your practise is important as it can help you to focus on what you have done well and identify areas you may need to improve I.e. It may make you consider new approaches or make you consider learning more or beginning new courses in relevant subjects. You can use reflective practice to improve the quality of the service you provide by thinking about a task you previously completed and asking yourself: What could have been done better? & how will I do that task next time? 1.3.
The teacher assistant and teacher should plan together so that you are clear from the outset what you will be doing and are given the opportunity to put forward your own ideas. In the case of teaching assistants who support individual pupils, this can be particularly beneficial since they will be able to identify any difficulties with planned activities at the earliest stages and will also know in advance if they will need to find particular resources b) Delivery: How a learning support practitioner would contribute on the delivery of a learning objective,
It means that students can take responsibility for some of their own progression. Students can ask themselves what am I learning and how can I do it better. Giving students constructive feedback will allow them to recognise how they can progress and achieve the next step in their learning. Having confidence that all students can improve. Both the teacher and student are involved in the reviewing process and can reflect on the assessment information.
Understanding the principles & practices of assessment Unit 1 1:1 Explain the function of assessment in learning and development The main function of an assessment is to ascertain if learning has taken place and that the learner has obtained the required knowledge, skills and understanding. Assessment needs to be a constant process which should take place every time you see the learner, either by watching what they are doing, asking questions or carrying out short coaching or training sessions. It should also focus on improving, re-enforcing learning and measuring achievement showing how the learner is developing and areas they need to improve on. Assessment can be formal which is when you use assessments, assignments, tests and workplace observation to assess learning and informal which can be by asking a few questions. When assessing learning it is important to have an understanding of initial assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment.
Writing down problems and/or questions and practice writing solutions and/or responses. Trying to use my hands when studying and explaining concepts to myself. I found this very helpful to know exactly my style because I didn’t exactly knew my style, I thought I had dfferent style but after this test and research I realised this was my style all
Actively encourage and support learners in becoming independent. Will lead learning “guided” groups, modelling concepts and language that the adult leading the learning has used. Will alter an activity or change the apparatus if an activity does not meet the learners needs to enable them to achieve or exceed the expected outcome. Are acutely aware of learners capabilities/prior learning/understanding and plan very effectively to build on these. The areas that I have assessed as “good” and therefore need improving are: Enable learners to access resources appropriately – I feel that I need to make more time to be able to show the children how they can get the best from the resources that they have available to them.
Evaluate own role and responsibilities in lifelong learning , follow the Teacher Training Method of Teaching ,Identify the needs by plan training, and deliver training. Followed by Assessment’s and feedback on Overall Evaluations. 4. Review own role and responsibilities in identifying and meeting the needs of learners. Initial assessment is to acknowledge the strength or weakness of each student and thoroughly learning about what is the best approach of learning about the students and the better approach or method of teaching the students, so they are able to understand. Target settings will also apply as a motivation for the students so they are able to understand the actual target’s that are required to be followed.
To achieve this, Coaching and mentoring should be applied to the area you want to develop, such as motivating staff, delegating, problem solving, relationship issues, team building, and staff development. It focuses on what people being coached want, what their goal is and how they can achieve it. The main objective is to develop the person being coached. This can be achieved through increasing self-confidence, indentifying suitable topics for coaching and developing planned tasks as part of job
The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.
