1.2 The difference between FORMATIVE and SUMMATIVE assessment is there are different strategies FORMATIVE assessment can be on-going; as a pupil learning takes place you can use different ways to measure. Using open ended questions, e.g. ask the pupil to explain how they are going to… Using observation we can see how a pupil is coping with what we are asking them to achieve, how they go about dealing with the task set, you can do this formally through direct observation or on a day to day basis in the classroom. Listening to a child explain how they are going to tackle the task set is a good way of understanding their methods. Listening to the answers given to questions asked is a good way to find out what they understand about a given task.
Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in terms of the teaching/training cycle. The teacher’s role, responsibilities and boundaries are permanently changing, evolving and being assessed in order to give the best possible learning experience to all students. Using the teaching/training cycle can benefit your personal development if you refer to and use its principles. The first stage of the cycle is Identify needs, this begins with the initial assessment where we can determine the learners needs and the correct course for them to achieve. We use a quickscan, and VAK test which helps to determine the learner style, (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic).

Summative assessment is assessing whether the student can apply knowledge taught within the lessons, this generally is the completion of a module or course, you will know with this assessment whether the student has passed, this assessment is usually formal.

Whilst keeping these considerations in mind it is also important that teachers refer to the course curriculum and syllabus to ensure that all topics and
I will write my assignment based around my Level One Electrical Installations course, which incorporates both practical and theory lessons as particulars of the course, and due to the nature of the course requirements, I have a large range of abilities in my classroom. When we look at Learner’s need we have to start by looking at Initial assessment. We initially assess in a number of ways: Tutor observations Self assessment exercises Group discussion One-to-one with tutor Games Practical activities Quizzes and questionnaires Using these as a guide to discuss each topic, I will analyse the role of initial assessment with regard to supporting my learners, organising teaching and learning strategies to help them, and look at developing resources and assessments for each. Tutor observations should be based around a framework of points the teacher is looking for. This is normally a mark sheet, (see App 1), Sometimes the tutor will notice something important that wasn’t on their framework, and they can adjust their framework for the future.
There are two different types of assessment, assessment for learning and assessment of learning. Assessment for learning is used to inform and guide instruction as well as diagnosis any misconceptions a student may have. Assessment of learning is used after the learning has already occurred to determine the level of understanding the student has achieved and to see if they have mastery of the standard. Within this component teachers can indicate which type of assessment they will use to guide instruction whether it be a pencil/paper test or assessing students using 21st century skills. Differentiation: When providing differentiation in the classroom the teachers provide instruction to meet or exceed each individual student.
Subsequently I should provide feedback to the teacher after the activity or lesson and inform the teacher on the children or child achievements and difficulties in the activity.

1.3 My first job as a teacher in the Lifelong Sector is to identify the needs of existing and potential learners. I need to identify their abilities by getting all learners to complete initial assessments in both maths and English to see what their capability is and to see what level they will be working towards. With potential learners we have a brief interview to establish what qualifications they currently have. We also need to establish if they have and learning difficulties or health problems which might affect their learning journey. My main role and responsibility is to make sure the learners are
The learning objectives here all reinforce number order by using various learning methods. So that the students will learn about grouping, my instructional objectives include manipulating objects, students explaining their reasoning to the teacher, and completing a worksheet which has pictures of groupings and solving adding/subtracting problems using the pictures on the worksheet. Varied teaching methods will be used to meet all of the instructional goals, so that more students will be
