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).
This then allows the teacher to amend the way in which they are teaching or what they are teaching to accommodate the results. It also gives students a way of identifying the areas they need to develop. The benefit of formative assessment is that a teacher can continually evaluate the learner and put them on the correct path if they are making mistakes. Summative assessments are used at the completion of a course. It is often formal and demanding and under controlled exam conditions.
Pupils must be familiar with learning objectives, outcomes and success criteria and feel confident in how to interpret them. Pupils should be involved in the target setting and assessment of their work. ( c) The learning support practioner Should be fully aware of the learning objectives. Will advise teachers of pupils who may need additional or consolidation work in order to enable them to achieve outcomes. Lead guided group sessions for explicit formative assessment opportunities.
I would need to know if I will be working on a 1:1 basis or with a group so I can plan accordingly. During the lesson I would be constantly monitoring each student that I am working with to ensure participation and understanding in the tasks set. I would be aware of the desired learning outcome and would be asking questions such as “what have you learnt today?” or “can you tell me one thing you now know after the lesson that you didn’t know before?” After the lesson I would discuss with the teacher what progress has been made and the level of the students engaging and what if anything the students have found particularly easy or difficult. On a termly basis I would feed back any issues that I have found with the students I have worked with, this is done in a meeting form so alternative provisions can be made if
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.
Keeping records is a very important reflexive tool for both teachers and learners in the educational setting. Accurate records taken throughout a course enables both teacher and students to continually reassess the effectiveness of the teaching/learning relationship by giving an ongoing measure against which to view learning objectives. Records indicate whether pupils have learnt what has been taught and are making sufficient progress with the course; who needs more help or is ready for more extensive work by assessing better or worse progress than expected; and whether teachers need to refine any aspects of their teaching by assessing successes or shortcomings where teaching needs to be strengthened. Attendance data taken on a close protection course gives an idea of where students may fall behind with learning outcomes through non attendance. Identifying non attendance could indicate a problem external to the teaching setting which may benefit from referral to other professionals or could point to students’ dissatisfaction with the teaching style which could be addressed by reassessing the teaching methods used in order to promote more inclusive practice.
When assessing an ELL students’ performance, there must be group work that will be close to the real world like problem solving and personal communication. The English language development is monitored overtime by the teacher’s observations and the student’s self-assessments. The assessments are used at every level of the learning process. Both the teacher and student will benefit from the initial results and the ongoing
To better understand this aspect of the role of the teacher, one would have to understand the teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle enables training to be effective if all the stages in the cycle if followed through. Identification of needs: As a tutor, my first role in the teaching and learning cycle would be to identify learners’ needs and the needs of the organisation. It is suggested that this is carried out before teaching starts. In an ideal situation, the learner would have completed some documentation that will provide the tutor some advance information on the learner. An example of this would be in a case of a learner who requires extra support i.e.
UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Main methods of assessments in life long learning are: academic (knowledge) and vocational (performance). Dependent on the subject, the assessment method may need to be adapted, using and adapting both these type assessments will ensure that the students acquire optimum achievement during my lesson. To decide which of these is most appropriate, the assessment cycle will be used: • Initial assessment - used to identify if my students already know something about the subject to be assessed and the needs of my students (for example more support). • Assessment planning - used to plan the suitable types and method of assessment following relevant organisational guidelines. • Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence.
• Help the pupils to develop skills in accessing information. • Listen to the pupils and take on board their points of view. • Get specialist advice and support. 7-Provide examplesof how you would encourage a pupil with behavioural,social and emotional difficulties to participate in the full range of activities and experiences in school,e.g.encouraging the pupil to participate effectively in learning activities;encouraging the pupil to behave in more acceptable ways by using appropriate rewards and sanctions;improving school attendance;helping the pupil to develop a positive self-image and self-esteem;providing opportunities for the pupil to express their feelings more appropriately such as discussion,storytime and play activities. 7-Providing support for pupils with behavioural ,social and emotional difficulties is
