I would at this stage have their folder and go through all their mandatory and relevant units with them. I would discuss with them their job role get them talking about what their do within the job on a daily bias. It is important to create a learners ILP (individual learning plan). It is important to explain to the learner about how as a TA what assessment methods I would be using. Assessment plan After my discussion with the learner I would use an assessment plan and explain to the learner what an assessment plan is.
Powers began by mentioning a proposed design model for the course after he viewed the professor’s syllabus, which was in the format of a learning portfolio. The first session consisted of discussion and observation between the two in order to create a more effective tutorial model. The second priority was to implement a calendar into the syllabus thus making it easier for students to maintain submission dates and to see how and where certain general course objectives would be met. The second to last task was creating an easy to navigate website used for material transferring purposes. The final step was focused on finding the best way to assess the professor’s students on their fulfillment of course objectives.
The goal of the initial interview is to determine the learning needs of the student while encouraging self-directed learning and achievable goal setting following the principles of Andragogy (Knowles 1990). Both students' agreed learning goals were documented in the
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).
You may elect to print out your article and do a first reading that uses strategies such as underlining, annotation, summarizing, and exploratory writing to make sure you understand the basic arguments. Go back to any sections that need clarification. On a second reading, start to pay attention to what Gawande is doing. You may want to outline the writing and describe the writer’s strategy. Notice how Gawande uses facts and personal experience (in most texts) to support claims, as well as other types of evidence.
PTTLS 7303: level3 award in preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector. Q.7 State the different assessment methods available and explain the ones you world use for your subject area, including reference to initial assessment records you would complete and explain why. The assessment methods available for teaching are as follows: initial assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment. 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. Summative assessments are also necessary to give feedback to the student if the feedback offered is adequate this can be also classed as formative assessment.
Name: Dean Hamilton Unit 3 Task 1: Assessment Approaches This assignment will analyse the range of approaches that I use to assess learning on the courses that I teach. ‘Assessment serves many different purposes. It can grade the attainment of learners, help to select candidates for jobs or future courses, contribute to evidence on the effectiveness of courses and teachers and provide a long term goal for learners’. (Petty 2004). An initial assessment (the first part) is carried out right at the start of the term and as teachers we would use this to determine the level of the learner, using it to help us decide whether the course is the correct one for the learner.
Deborah’s Homework “Write two essays, one about Argyle’s theory and Tuckman’s theory of communication. I must do my own research.” Tuckman’s theory focuses on the way in which a term tackles a task from the initial formation of the team through to the completion of the project. Tuckman later added a fifth phase; Adjourning and Transforming to cover the finishing of the task. Tuckman’s theory is particularly relevant to team building challenges as the phases pertain to the completion of any task undertaken by a team. One of the very useful aspects of team building activities contained within a short period of time is that teams have an opportunity to observe their behaviour within a measurable time frame.

Gravells takes this one step further by saying adult learning is all about helping someone reach their full potential. (Gravells, 2008, p. 5) The training cycle (Gravells, 2008, p. 28) (Appendix 1) is an excellent model to follow as the five stages will help the teacher ensure the learning is effective and relevant to the learners and/or organisation. It is the role of the teacher to establish the needs of the organisation and/or the learners and to assess learner’s competence levels and gain knowledge on their motivators. A responsibility in my role was to contact individual learner prior to the course to determine their objectives, any dietary requirements, any learning requirements and motivators for attending; whilst establishing ground rules regarding date, time and location to ensure learners would turn up on time at the right place. Another responsibility is keeping learners personal information secure; teachers will have access to learner’s records and personal data, so it is vital to follow the guidelines under the Data Protection
