Assessment of learning is summative and can confirm that learning has taken place, but assessment for learning is a formative process which determines the learners progress so far and can be used to plan any further learning or development that may be required. Assessment is used to determine if learning and development is taking place with regard to specific criteria. The criteria are usually set by the awarding body for each qualification the learner is taking and will be published on the awarding body’s website or in other course information i.e. the course handbook. The purpose of assessment in learning is to determine the learner’s level of competence by using a range of different methods.
Reflect on your status as a professional in the Lifelong Learning Sector and how you manage your professional roles and responsibilities. Show how you have used theories of Reflective Practice to identify a specific area for development in your subject specialist teaching. Based on your own research into the subject specialism, design a new activity/ session that will engage and challenge your learners. Implement this activity/session with one group of learners and then evaluate its success and limitations. In this essay I will provide a definition for what Reflection is and an understanding of the concept of both professionalism and dual professionalism.
165) Learning is an active process which leads to the creation of schemas. Schemas are concepts or ideas of what things are. Schemas are constructed as we encounter new experiences and engage in the process of adaptation. (instructor, ch.6 notes). The process begins with the equilibrium which is thrown off by a new experience.
This is a process scientifically known as cognition and is a key to therapy (1). The rationale of Cognitive behavioural therapy is that a person’s behaviour and emotional responses are controlled by the immediate thought. A thought is also known as cognition which is continually influencing the previous experiences and the knowledge that the client has of this. Psychodynamics is the study of the interrelationships of various parts of the mind, personality, or psyche as they relate to mental, emotional, or motivational forces at the unconscious level (3). Psychodynamics are split into two parts, interaction with emotions and motivational forces and the effect our mental state especially the subconscious and inner forces which affect our behaviour.
* Identify the requirements of the assessment strategy of the qualification to ensure the learner can meet the specification. B - Formative assessment in tracking learner progress Formative assessment is the assessment that takes place during a course or programme of study, as an integral part of learning process, and such it is down to the teacher or trainer to design and implement it. It refers to frequent, interactive assessment of student progress and understanding to identify learning needs and adjust teaching appropriately. By using formative assessment approaches and techniques you are better prepared to meet the diverse students’ needs – through differentiation and adaptation of teaching to raise levels of student achievement and to achieve a greater equity of
Clinical Supervision Interview At Pathways Recovery First of all, a reflective practice is a learning process, comprehending process, analysis and growth in personal, professional, and academic life cycle, pattern, or path. That aims in developing a focus, a solid reflection, and a solid foundation to make a change and it’s a process that takes place to make this life calling events.

Secondly, reflective practice aims to identify strengths, weakness, and self-awareness in all areas of a person life trend. It help the person come into focus within self by knowing their abilities,
The reason for this will be highlighted throughout the essay: making it important to analyse the basic concepts of the model and understand how the principles and theories of psychodynamic counselling relates to other counselling models. It is also important to identify why this particular model’s attributes would suit me as a potential client. There are several branches of Psychodynamic approach such as; Ego Psychology, which tends to focus on enhancing and maintaining the client’s ego function in accordance with the demands of reality: Object Relations psychology identifies how people are shaped in relation to the people around them, again this focusses on relationships children have throughout their developmental stages: Self Psychology observes that a person encounters problems when they lack self-esteem, and that subsequently effects their relationships (Gross, 2010). A key principle of a Psychodynamic counsellor is that people tend to have bad relationships because they repeat destructive patterns from their past. Clients will transfer feelings from the past onto new people in their lives and therefore repeat the pattern over and over again.
Introduction In this assignment, I will be explaining in more detail; the person centred model of counselling, used primarily during this Level 3 course. The concepts and principles of the model and who was responsible for them. I will be seeking the value of the person-centred model and pitting it alongside its counterparts. I shall discussing two other models, their key features and uses and compare and contrast with the person-centred model of counselling. In doing so, this will raise my knowledge and awareness, of the person-centred model and other models used within counselling.
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Abraham Maslow emphasizes the importance of self- actualization, which is a process of growing and developing as a person to accomplish her or his potential (About.com.Psychology, 2012). The Hierarchy of Needs theory helps us as individuals to see how different needs help to motivate individuals. Maslow divided needs into two different categories. First, he identified the deficiency needs “D-needs” or (D-motives); meaning theses needs arise during
Jane Humphries DTTLS MODULE 2 Select an assessment cycle from a course on which you teach. Using appropriate assessment terminology and relevant theories, critically evaluate the assessment cycle in terms of: * The overall purpose and type of assessment processes used * The appropriateness and effectiveness of the assessment. How assessment is recorded and used to promote learning * How inclusivity is maintained within the cycle. Assessment measures the success of learning, teaching and achievement and guides the next steps to be accomplished. Assessment is integral to the planning process and is a tool for reflection on programme construction and teaching.
