Teachers can analyse performance using tests or questioning the pupils after completing an activity. Plans could include differentiated classroom groups, built in review time. Plan to give pupils examples of a variety of skills, attitudes, standards and qualities to aim for. (b) the learners Peer and self assessment are activities that actively engage pupils with their level of understanding and the quality of their work and help them to reflect on how to improve. Pupils must be familiar with learning objectives, outcomes and success criteria and feel confident in how to interpret them.
Formative Assessment in tracking learner progress Formative assessment (assessment for learning) is engaged during a course or programme. This is the type of assessment used and it allows teachers to adjust targets and objectives to suit the student until they develop skills and become more confident. Formative assessment is usually informal (Formative informal) and can take place at any time during the teaching and learning process. Feedback from formative assessment will be beneficial to both student and teacher as it not only allows the student to recognize their success and look at areas for development but it allows the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and look to improve on future sessions. Formative assessment is often seen as being motivational as it can be seen as a review rather than an assessment.
If you know the learning style of the student, it is easier to convey the message you are trying to convey. Teachers adapt to their students and help them according to their style learning. Knowing the learning strategies influence teaching and learning by allowing the teacher know what is going on and giving students a chance to understand the material. These learning strategies help both: the teacher and the student. References Roell, K. (2014, January 1).
If you are not part of the planning you can still speak to the teacher about what will be happening and offer ideas and suggestions of your own. 1.1 continued Role of teacher Role of teaching assistant • To be responsible for planning and preparing to the National or Early Years Curriculum • To plan and prepare work alongside the teacher • To teach pupils according to their educational needs • To support learning activities • To access, record and report on the development, progress and attainment of pupils • To assess/evaluate children’s work as directed by the teacher • To take responsibility for all other adults within

In this respect, the ultimate aim is to enable learners to understand how to take responsibility for their own development. Teachers can do this by planning and preparing teaching and learning activities that take account of the needs and well-being of individual learners as well as groups of learners. Some key aspects of a role as a teacher may be: carrying out initial and/or diagnostic assessments; clear communication with your learners, other professionals and stakeholders; promoting appropriate behaviour and respect for others; identifying and meeting individual learners’ needs; being aware of the support mechanisms available; being organised; being reflective, which means learning from successes as well as mistakes. What are my responsibilities as a teacher? As a teacher, my primary responsibility is to ensure that learners are enrolled onto the correct course, in terms of meeting their needs, abilities and aspirations.
Before carrying out activities, you will need to have an awareness of the curriculum and stage at which pupils are at. As a member of support staff, as time goes on and the more experience gained, the more will be learnt about particular students and how they work best. It is ideal if support staff access school records about pupils learning to ensure they are up to date, familiar and prepared with supporting individual

Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities for the following areas : * literacy skills * numeracy skills * ICT skills * problem solving skills A learning support practitioner will contribute to the planning of an activity by firstly gaining a clear understanding of what the learning objective is and what the teacher wants the child to achieve from the activity. The practitioner will then find out the ability of the pupils they are working with and if they require any extra or specialist help , this then helps the practitioner provide the correct materials and equipment they need for the activity. A learning support practitioner would also contribute to planning as they will identify if pupils they are working with are likely to finish early and so can arrange with the teacher and additional sheets these children may need. An important part of planning would be for the practitioner to be aware of how much time they have to do the activity and can plan the activity to suit. A learning support practitioner will also be required to provide the teacher with feedback of the activity and the child's performance , so the practitioners should arrange with the teacher beforehand how they should be providing the feedback.
Their role is to facilitate independent learning, access to the curriculum and promote inclusion. They help with a variety of functions during lessons to support teachers and help students spetially with numeracy and
