Lesson Plan in Appropriateness of Assessment Methods
LESSON PLAN IN ASSE 22I. Objectives: At the end of the discussion, the students are expected to: a. identify the different objective tests included in written-response instruments; b. differentiate the general categories of assessment method; and c. make or create their own checklist that can be use in assessing students’ performance.II. Subject Matter: Topic: “Appropriateness of Assessment Methods” Material(s): visual aid, textbook, power point presentation, chalk board Reference(s): http//www.google.com.ph Advanced Methods in Educational Assessment and Evaluation Assessment of Learning 2 Rosita De Guzman-Santos, Ph.D. Lorimar Publishing Inc. pp. 11-14III. Procedure(s): A. Motivation: The students will be asked give the meaning of appropriateness of assessment methods. B. Lesson Proper/Discussion: “Appropriateness of Assessment Methods”1. Written-Response Instruments Objective Tests – are appropriate for assessing the various levels of hierarchy of educational objectives. Multiple choice - in particular can be constructed in such a way as to test higher order thinking skills. True-false - alternative choice test in which the student or examinee indicates whether each of several statements is true or false. Matching or short answer - reduces the effects of guessing. Tests - structural, oral/written intended or designed for the students.
Essays - when properly planned, can test the students’ grasp of the higher level cognitive skills particularly in the areas of application, analysis, synthesis, and judgment. Examinations - different types of test, scheduled, growth curriculum or consisting of type. Checklists - tools that state specific criteria and allow teachers and students to gather information and to make judgments about what students know and can do in relation to the outcomes. They offer systematic ways of collecting data about specific behavior, knowledge and skills. Example of Essay: 1. (POOR) Write an essay about the first EDSA revolution 2. (BETTER) Write an essay about the first EDSA revolution giving focus on the main characters of the revolution and their respective roles. In the second essay question, the assessment foci are narrowed down to: (a) the main characters of the event, and (b) the roles of each character in the revolution leading to the ouster of the incumbent President at that time. It becomes clear what the teacher wishes to see and what the students are supposed to write. 2. Product Rating Scales – the teacher must possess prototype products over his/her experience. An example of it is the classic “hand writing” scale used in California Achievement Test Form W (1957). 3. Performance Tests - a performance checklist consist of a list of behaviors that make up a certain type of performance (e.g. using a microscope, typing a letter, solving a mathematics performance and so on). It is used to determine whether or not an individual behaves in a certain (usually desired) way when asked to complete a particular task. If a particular behavior is present when an individual is observed, the teacher places a check opposite it on the list. Example of Performance Checklist in Solving Mathematics Problem:Behavior:1. Identifies the given information __
2. Identifies what is being asked __ 3. Uses variables to replace the unknown __ 4. Formulates the equation __ 5. Performs algebraic equations __ 6. Obtains an answer __ 7. Checks if the answer makes sense __ Group Project Likert Scale Directions: For each of the following criteria, place the most appropriate number or letter to evaluate your peers actions in group project. Group may be evaluated as a whole or as individuals. Excellent Good Satisfactory Fair Poor 5 4 3 2 1 or A: Always S: Sometimes N: Never1. __Your peers participated in the initial discussion used to get project going.2. __Your peers contributed with creative ideas that enhances project.3. __Your peers participated in the initial discussion used to get project going.4. __Your peers contributed with creative ideas that enhances project.5. __Your peers were friendly, enthusiastic, and positive during group work. LIKERT SCALE - is used to evaluate a product or demonstration by selecting a number from highest to lowest , (e.g., 1-5) for each specified trait. The numbers are arranged horizontally and are added up to arrive at an overall score 4. Oral Questioning – is an appropriate assessment method when the objectives are: (a) to assess the student’s stock knowledge and/or (b) to determine the student’s ability to communicate ideas in coherent verbal sentences. The traditional Greeks used this extensively as an assessment method. Socrates himself, considered the epitome of a teacher. 5. Observation and Self-reports - are useful supplementary assessment methods when used in conjunction with oral questioning and performance tests. Self-checklist - is a list of several characteristics or activities presented to the subjects of a study. The individuals are asked to study the list and then to place a mark opposite the characteristics which they possess or the activities which they have engaged in for a particular length of time.
C. Generalization: It is necessary to determine an appropriate assessment procedure or method once the learning targets are clearly set. As a teacher, we have to assess our students learning by using different methods. Written-response instruments include objective tests (multiple choice, true or false, short answer or matching type) tests, essays, examinations, and checklists. It will help us identify/determine what types of learners we had. IV. Evaluation: 5 items quiz will be given to the students after the discussion. Fill in the blanks: Write the corresponding answer on the space provided: ________1. It is a structural, oral/written intended or designed for the students. ________2. It is a type of test that reduces the effects of guessing. ________3. It is a list of several characteristics or activities presented to the subjects of a study. ________4. It is a type of checklist that the teacher must possess prototype experiences. ________5. Different types of test, scheduled, growth curriculum or consisting of type. V. Assignment: Make your own checklist differ from the examples given from the textbook.Prepared by:Divine Heidi G. CabiguinBSE – E/ 3 – Irreg.Approved by:Ms. Anabella C. GomezASSE 22 December 4, 2012
