The purpose of assessment in learning is to determine the learner’s level of competence by using a range of different methods. Based on the findings of the assessment and the evidence gathered during the assessment, decisions can then be made by comparing the evidence against the qualification standards. This will determine if the learner’s Competence, Knowledge & Understanding of the subject, and Skills required to carry out required tasks are of a sufficient level to meet the laid down criteria. Assessment should be used to focus on improving and reinforcing learning. It can help a learner understand how they are progressing and what they may need to do to improve their knowledge and progress further.
Teaching Assistant level 3Assignment 3 Student Name: Shazna Begum Student Number: SHA851BE Tutor: Mr Ken Smith Question 1: Why is it important to observe and assess pupils development? Precise observations and assessments are vital to efficient educational training. Cautious analysis enables both the teacher and teaching assistant to make assessments linking to each individual’s behaviour, learning techniques, stages of development and maturation, curriculum advantages and disadvantages, contemporary learning needs and attainments. These observations and assessments can help underline and commemorate individuals advantages and also discover any disadvantages in their learning. It can outline the basis for the partial development of the right learning needs and abilities and may also be constructive preliminary stage for future learning prospects There are many rationales why it’s significant to observe and assess pupils’ development.
The assessments are carried out formative, continuing checks throughout the learning, testing against previous marks and summative at the end of the course. This helps the learner see their own development and allows the assessor to give feedback. This allows the assessor to gain and measure the learner understanding of the subject against the outcomes set in the criteria. Throughout the assessments the assessor should ensure that their decisions are; fit for purpose, reflect the required standards and assessment criteria. Assessment decisions should be internally or externally verified, thus contributing to quality assurance and development of best practise.
CTLLS Unit 2 Assessment Issue Date: Submission Date: Planning and Enabling Learning Rationale: Unit 2 will provide opportunities for trainee teachers to develop their competence in planning to meet the needs of individual learners through negotiation of appropriate individual goals, the effective preparation of sessions, the application of appropriate teaching and learning strategies and resources, the management and delivery of inclusive learning and the application of knowledge about the minimum core. In working towards achieving this, trainee teachers will be required to evaluate the effectiveness of their own teaching and learning in the development of their professional skills. Assessment Criteria: describe the level of achievement
Identifying what type of personality is present enables students develop study plans that are best suited for success. As important as it is to understand personal intelligence and personality types, it may become more important to understand the intelligence and personality types of your peers. Group activities and discussions are an integral part of the distance learning. In order for all students to get the most out of these settings, an understanding of how others think, process and react is a must. Understanding the strengths of fellow students allows one to improve areas of weakness by absorbing what is imparted by fellow students.
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).
Customized Learning Theory Angelique Young Liberty University Introduction There are many ideas and theories on what makes the best learning environment. Things to consider are teacher-student relationships, teacher-parent relationships, parent-student relationships and lastly, student-self relationships. Each relationship creates an environment that is intertwined with the other to create the best learning environment for the student. When one or more of these relationships fracture, the environment for the student is, at best retarded, if not crippled. By understanding the dynamic of these relationships, a teacher understands the development and learning of students and seeks opportunities to positively support not only their intellectual development, but also social and personal as well.
It is important to gather resources and information about the course to make appropriate planning. Once I identify any barriers or boundaries, I use different strategies through the lesson to help the students. My job is to encourage the students to share their experiences and to stimulate good communication and group work. I also have to
* 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
The steps for effectively planning learning activities is based on the 'pupils individual needs, abilities and interests'. Information gathered from one to ones, observation reports and assessments of the student will inform the learning materials used as well as the curriculum requirements outlined by the education standards organisation. The use of a continuous planning cycle will ensure that the pupils needs and the requirements of the school are met. I would use the following processes to plan learning activities. This includes; * Identifying individual learning needs via one to ones or through observations.
