  26. 26. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Observing children in instructional settings When attempting to record observations of children, two problems emerged, limited time and how to compose quality records. Classroom Situation A teacher works with group of students, leading them on a discussion on a work of children’s literature. The students are making personal connections to the story, they are making insightful comments and asking probing questions. The lesson comes to a close just as the recess bell rings. The class files out the door to play. Now what?
  27. 27. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Observing children in instructional settings Observations are recorded before the moment is lost to short term memory Observing children is done with thorough planning and preparation Observation and recording of multiple features of student performance are done at glance Anecdotal Records Classroom Situation
  28. 28. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Writing quality anecdotal records When attempting to record observations of children, many teachers write erroneous anecdotal records Classroom Situation Not observable: “Wrote a few sentences,” “read a lot,” “misspelled words many times,” “knows vocabulary,” or “understood the story.” Observable: “Wrote 3 sentences,” “read for 5 minutes,” “misspell 6 words,” “defined vocabulary,” or “answer 2 comprehension questions.”
  29. 29. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Writing quality anecdotal records Teacher’s Planning Anecdotal Records The teacher clarifies the word choice for observable records and undergoes forecasting “Does the wording tell me what the student is doing?” “Do I see the child matching words to pictures?” Another set of questions deals with quantitative data. “How many words were spelled correctly? How many times did the student self-correct? How much time did the student read independently?
  30. 30. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Managing anecdotal records When handling on-going observations, teachers often squander on how to properly manage anecdotal records Classroom Situation Teachers often deal with anecdotal records as a mere document. After doing such it will be placed on the cabinet until eternity. Once piled on paper, it remains untouched and invalidated.
  31. 31. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Managing anecdotal records Proper management of anecdotal records can be done by a section for sorting observations into “Strengths” or “Needs.” The next section allows for writing instructional recommendations based upon the child’s identified “Strengths” and “Needs.” The final section is a boxed area for noting any special needs accommodations.

  33. 33. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Analysis of anecdotal records The exploration of observations written in anecdotal records are difficult to be done if the teachers lacks knowledge on how to properly analyze written observations. Classroom Situation The teacher does not have a concrete standard that will serve as basis for comparison on the student’s performance. She just creates her make belief analysis for the entire grading period.
  34. 34. Why Anecdotal Records Assessment? Analysis of anecdotal records Anecdotal records allows teachers to compare the standards to the child’s performance. The standards also inform the selection of strategies and activities for instructional recommendations. Periodically, analyze the compiled records for each student. The period of time between analyses may vary according to your own academic calendar.
