Readily it is difficult yet to plan withoutconsidering what materials to utilized. Prepared by: Carie Justine P. EstrelladoOrganize your process – oriented performance assessment plan in a show portfolio with thefollowing suggested entries:  Learning objectives  General performance task  Learning episodes  Assessment tasks  Rubrics for assessing learning
  5. 5. Some of the information are not genuine [Year] PROCESS – ORIENTED PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT PLANLearning Objectives:  Naipapaliwanag ang kahulugan ng pagkonsumo;  Naibabahagi ang ideya batay sa talakayin;  Nakikihalubilo at naipapakita ang pagtulong sa gampanin; at  Nabibigyang kongklusyon ang kahalagahan ng pagkonsumo.General Performance Task: (accdg. To Parker and Jarolimek, 1997. Performance assessments resemble typical learningtasks like written products, group - reporting, demonstration, integrated art and musicactivities, construction of projects, dramatization, and museum displays.So I choose Group reporting, since it is compatible to the learners‟ abilities to interact like buzzsession) In general the task is for learners participate by random group typically heterogeneous type and provide such evidence of cooperation and good communication towards their members regarding the assigned topic of „pagkonsumo‟. They will also present individually but group concepts.Learning Episodes (describe in terms of students‟ specific learning tasks/activities) I will orient them first regarding the activity Group them by 5 groups heterogonous Assigned specific topic The first group would be reporting „salik ng pagkonsumo‟ Second group „batas ng pagkonsumo‟ „Pagkonsumo ng pamilyang pilipino‟ „law of diminishing utility‟ „nakakaimpluwensya sa pagkonsumo‟ The task should render only 30 minutes to discuss themselves on what materials and teschniques to be used. The other day they will present by group concept Some might performing role playing or media presentations and etc. They should accomplish it with ease Originality is observed They will give their comments and suggestions regarding the reporters They should prepare ahead of time.
  6. 6. Some of the information are not genuine [Year]Assessment Tasks(describe in terms of acceptable standards of learning behaviour)  The teacher will asks someone particularly the leader on how the reporting thoroughly done with the members (Socratic approach) giving their planned concepts for 3 minutes each group.  I also asks them individually if they understood the lesson especially the topic they have reported. e.g. „anung ibig sabihin ng kita batay sa relasyon ng pagkonsumo?‟ „mayroon bang batas ng pagkonsumo na sinusunod ngayon?‟Other basis of task depend on how they will present it, so if there is an misinterpreted lines oractions of learners which is far from the prepared objectives the teacher will consider it.Rubrics for Assessing Learning: Scoring Rubric for Buzz Session Indicators Not sometimes always score often 1.

  8. 8. Some of the information are not genuine [Year]Your Analysis 1. Do you think your originally designed process – oriented performance assessment can appropriately assess the teacher‟s learning objective? Why?/Why not? Yes, yes, and definitely YES! Because before I manage to draw the process – oriented performance task, I therefore first know the relationship of my concept based on the updated planned made by our resource teacher as concern also for my interest. And by the way, Why would I do such plan and in the end it will be worthless, what an abhor question. 2. Why do teachers need to give attention to the students‟ process – oriented tasks? Why do they need to assess them? This is very crucial on the process – oriented plan let I give some concluding insights information about outcomes is of high performance; where students “end up” matters greatly. But to improve outcomes, we need to know about student experience along the way – about the curricula, teaching, and kind of student effort that lead to particular outcomes. And through assessment it can help us understand which students learn best under what conditions; with such knowledge comes the capacity to improve the whole learning scenario. 3. In what conditions can the process – oriented performance assessment be used more appropriately? It is not impossible to assess appropriately unless we point out and diagnose the problem, let say by setting the readiness of the learners and the materials to utilized.Your ReflectionsWrite your personal reflection of thoughts and feelings about your personal strategies for makingyour efforts successful in this part of your FS.For the first time. This moment of my life. The moment who is always remembering my pastdays when I was in elementary. That time I don‟t know why and how do teachers assess thelearning of students and what instruments do they render. I also asked my self then that „It isreally is it hard to prepare one?‟, in conscious sense the way I plan this activity is the answer thatI‟ve been waitin‟ for and the key on how also to be a teacher. Though I realize that it is not aneasy task – non – stop curriculum.
  9. 9. Some of the information are not genuine [Year]It‟s been a bucket of water of effort to accomplish this field study though as I said so that it isvery acute and simple but this model of mine was liken by some of my cooperating teachers, stillthere are some added suggestions to improve in extent. Thoughts: Having done with the assessment method as I validate this to my cooperating teacher then I knew that there are some revisions to do, and I also remember that making performance method is much difficult to attain and yet, assessment is some kind of a dying method and a complex process that need a clear instructional objectives. And need review to attain the essence of this assessment procedures – so in general my thoughts regarding this issue is not ordinary than that of others.

EstrelladoANALYSIS 1. Do you think your originally designed product – oriented performance assessment can appropriately assess the teacher‟s learning objective? Why?/why not? Yes, it not just assess lower competencies but as well as higher order thinking skills like judgment skills and application so in this view it fit and appropriate and as well related to the planned objectives.
  16. 16. Some of the information are not genuine [Year] 2. Why do teachers need to give attention to the students‟ product – oriented tasks? Why do they need to assess them? In connection to the episode 4, YES teachers need to assess product also not just the process but also the final output because it explains where students have gone on their way and if it related to the theme or concepts. 3. In what conditions can the product – oriented performance assessment be used more appropriately? On my view the conditions are more on applicable when measuring more on psychomotor domain, like looking if they can produce something based on the theme or etc. And here are the following conditions to be made directly or indirectly: Firs, if the learners’ competencies where enough to sustain the activity. Second, interest and objective – matching. And if the learning environment was suitable to them. If that happens the needs where equally visible then product assessment can be executedREFLECTIONSMy feelings about this was drastic, because I saw or observed many product based assessment so I haveto choose in relation to my specialization, however assessing the product should always giveconsideration to the students decision, unlike the teacher centred so I really really hate it. There is thegap of ego and utilitarianism. Peace Concept on Focus: Equity For the students, learning becomes more meaningful if there is equity in our assessment practices. Since equity respects individual learning styles and student direction, students’ performance increases.
  17. 17. Some of the information are not genuine [Year]Discuss with your FS classmate your thoughts on equity in assessment. Then write down yourthoughts as well as those of your classmates. Please use the space below. My thoughts regarding this episode is that mere to speak that it’s really hard to tell equity is the best policy would be since second to ‘honesty’ I think therefore I am that Equity is an important values that everyteachers to know in fact not all teachers are aware of it. When I become a teacher I would consider the student – based criteria with a little consideration on my view and due processing, yet meaningfully can be achieved and the product of the students could be as reliable and valid if students’ direction followed.

Partially yes, not just through the objective type but to the behaviour as well.2. Why did you have to study the teacher’s learning objectives prior to developing an assessment tool? to know the congruence and to know what feedback will be made. REFLECTION: The process of assessing was not difficult to attain there are some factors that hinder to know what exactly method will use The learning environment and the attitude of students determines the passing rate of students; unlikely as I keenly observed on the past F.S. 2
  23. 23. Some of the information are not genuine [Year]Peace Concept on Focus: FAIRNESS ASSESSMENT, FAIRNESS is not only a matter of teacher’s attitude towards students. It also involves the use of assessment tools that are appropriate, valid, and reliable. Fairness An assessment procedure needs to be fair. This means many things. First, students need to know exactly what the learning targets are and what method of assessment method of assessment will be used. If thestudents do not know what they are supposed to be achieving then they could get lost in the maze of concepts being discussed in class. Likewisestudents have to be informed how their progress will be assessed in order to allow them to strategize and optimize their performance. Second, assessment has to be viewed as an opportunity to learn rather than anopportunity to weed out poor and slow learners. The goal should be thatof diagnosing the learning process rather than the learning object. Third fairness implies freedom from teacher – stereotyping.

For your reading of selected articles on the new trends of classroom assessment, pleaseuse the sheet below. My review notes“good assessments”Good classroom assessment eventually leads to improved teaching. And improvedteaching means better academic performance of the students. To ensure that goodassessment methods are utilized, the teachers must determine if these characteristicsare met. Active student involvement – The involvement of students in assessment is not limited to the role of recipients. The students must contribute to the planning of the assessment. This implies that the coverage of a test is not solely determined by the textbook or by the teacher’s knowledge. The coverage of the test must include information that was gathered and analyzed by the students. Skilled teacher direction – Although students participate in planning some aspects of the assessment, the teacher holds the wheel in navigating the assessment procedures. It is the classroom teacher who has required the professional training to decide how to carry out the assessment and how to deal with the results of the assessment. In the same vein, outsiders should not direct assessment. It is the teacher who intimately knows the situation in the classroom. Constructive – The assessment should provide constructive information for both the teacher and the students. Assessments should not be used to threaten students with grades. And assessments should not be used to threaten teachers with scores. On the contrary, assessments should be used to inspire students to perform better. Assessments should be used to identify learning difficulties so that these difficulties can be addressed and overcome. And assessments should be used to help the teacher in improving his/her teaching techniques. Purpose-driven – The assessment should be able to fulfill its purpose. If it is a summative type of assessment, then all steps must be taken to ensure that the results will be valid and reliable and the scoring will be objective and free from any bias. If it is a formative type of assessment, then the results must be utilized to improve the teaching and learning process. The scores from formative tests do not end up as grades but as figurative arrows that will guide teachers on how to proceed with the classroom

My interview notes (This interview took 20 minutes to accomplish) (insights on In using Authentic assessment reflects educationalpolicy research that recommends a "high priority on strategies that research has already shown toincrease student learning."Authentic assessment tends to focus on complex or contextualised tasks, enabling students todemonstrate their competency in a more authentic setting. Examples of authentic assessmentsinclude: performance of the skills, or demonstrating use of a particular knowledge simulations and role plays
  27. 27. Some of the information are not genuine [Year] studio portfolios, strategically selecting items exhibitions and displaysAccording to Ormiston, "Authentic learning mirrors the tasks and problem solving that arerequired in the reality outside of school"Based on the quotation of Mrs. Rono “hindi masyadong fit sa subject ng history pero meron din‟part na pwede, matagal din‟ n‟yang proseso at kailangan pa ng validation, yun nga lang effectiveyan”Authentic assessment is an umbrella concept that refers to the measurement of "intellectualaccomplishments that are worthwhile, significant, and meaningfulMrs. Roño: “tama ka dyan it is an umbrella kasi „alternative‟ yan eh na hindi basta - bastakayang e – measure ng yung alam mo na ng kognitibong domain”Carie: ma‟am gaano po ba ito ka epektibo?Mrs. Roño: “napakaepektibo nito dahil „process‟ at „product‟ ang nakatayang sukatin” Reflective journalHow did you feel about the teacher‟s experience in the use of authentic assessment?  The above statement was not stated clearly because of some random factors, but as I observed during the month of July 8, she delivered it with ease according to the criteria and descriptors laid by the students, since she wants to measure the performance of story telling.What do you think have been the gains enjoyed by the teacher and his/her students from usingauthentic assessment?  Direct answer, the teacher learned more than she expected.Which part of the teacher‟s use of authentic assessment do you feel like improving or revising?  All of them – improving, since it is properly planned and based on the students‟ criteria
