Use appropriate assessments to evaluate student learning before, during, and after instruction
Artifact: PED 434 Presentation
Date: Fall 2011
In PED 434 my team and I planned a Team Handball unit and decided that our main focus was watching throwing and catching. I took baseline data in all three domains cognitive, psychomotor, and affective. Then I taught a lesson and instructed all of the students exactly what myself and my co-teachers were expecting of them. Later in the semester we came back and ran a lesson followed by a post test. We then came up with the presentation (on the right) and presented it to the parents and school board. The presentation consists of graphs and goals that we expect all of our students to meet.
Assessments are a key part of teaching and it is important to utilize pre-testing, during the unit assessments, and post testing. Pre-testing shows students where they are and where they have to go. During assessments shows improvement up to that point, and post tests show what has been learned throughout the entire semester. Being able to learn and implement how to assess is a great skill to have so that I can correctly assess my kids. Assessments not only show improvement of the student, but improvements or modifications I have to make as a teacher
