  3. 3. Learning Assessment StrategiesMy Map I will observe at 2 different classes. Pay close attention to what the ResourceTeacher does in relation to assessment.To hit my Target, I will work my way through these steps: Step 1. I will review the principles of assessment of learning on pp. 114-122 of Principles of Teaching, 2007 by Corpuz, B. and G. Salandanan and Assessment of Learning 2, 2007 Santos, Rosita, pp. Step 2. I7-22.observe 2 different classes and interview my will Resource Teachers for principle # 8. Step 3. I will identify evidence of applications of the principles of assessment of learning. I may cite more than one evidence per principle of assessment. Step 4. Guided by a question/questions. I will reflect on my experience. Write down my reflection.My Tools As I observe a class, I will use the Observation Sheet for a more focusedobservation. OBSERVATION SHEETName of School: Linao National High SchoolSchool Address: Linao North, Tuguegarao City Date of Visit: January 11, 2012Grade/Year Level: II-1 & II - 2 Subject Area: BiologyPrinciples of Learning Assessment Teaching Behavior of the Teacher/Learning Behavior of the Learner as Proof of the Application of the Principle of Learning1. Assessment is an integral part of the As I observed in the midst of discussion, teaching-learning process. the teacher asked question to the learners and occurrence of ideas or exchange of knowledge were being noticed. This is one way to evaluate the understanding of the learners to the topic introduced to them.2. Assessment tool/activity should match As I observed in the classroom, the activity with performance objective. that was given by the teacher is consistent to the performance objective. The teacher also introduced and viewed to the students some examples of contraceptives in order for the teacher to reach her objectives and [3]

The results of assessment must be The learner has the right to see the fruits of feedback to the learners. his sacrifices and I noticed that the teacher has this principle in mind in a way that she returned the outputs of her students in a very usual way. I mean she gave it back without degrading to those who got low and boosting to those who got high.4. Teachers must consider learners’ I observed that the teacher came up with learning styles and multiple different strategies and technique for the intelligences and so come up with a learners to be motivated and develop their variety of ways of assessing learning. skills. The teacher introduces a lot of activities for the students reveal their own interest.5. Give some positive feedback with not During the discussion, different opinions of so good ones. students were raised; some opinions were well accepted and some were far beyond to the question thrown but then the teacher managed it. If the answer of the learner was not exactly the point was she accepted and tried to elaborate so that the learners understand it well.6. Emphasize on self assessment. The teacher assesses herself before entering to the classroom because self assessment is very important especially for her because it is one way to evaluate if the strategies used is effective.7. Assessment of learning should never be Assessment of learning was not used to used as punishment or as disciplinary punished students instead it is used to measure. measure the knowledge and understanding of the learners.8. Emphasize on real world application I observed that the teacher favors realistic that favors realistic performances over performance because she gives activities out-of-context drills. that the learners develop their skills such as drawing in relation with their lesson. The learners enjoyed their different activities.9. Results of learning assessment must be The teacher practice keeping accurate communicated regularly to parents. records and communicate them to parents in the best mean way possible. Records of the students’ progress were sent to the parents quarterly or every grading period. [4]
  5. 5. Learning Assessment StrategiesMy Analysis What are the possible consequences on the teaching-learning process if each ofthe principles is not observed? Principle of Learning Assessment Possible Consequence if Principle is NOT Observed1. Assessment is an integral part of the Students want to know exactly what they teaching-learning process. have to do to gain good marks/grades. Teachers can do a lot to assist them. If this integral part of teaching-learning process not observed, the consequences are: there’s a big gap between the learner and the teacher. And the students might not assess anymore how far they have learned.2. Assessment tool/activity should match The prepared activity must coincide with with performance objective. the performance objectives to avoid consequences like confusion and can make students very anxious and lead to unproductive work.3. The results of assessment must be Giving feedback to the learners is essential feedback to the learners. because feedback is the only way to know if they have succeeded or failed. If they need to recover from failure or deepen their understanding, they need to have explanations and suggestions for improvement. If this is not observed, how the students can address their problems, how can they improve their grades?4. Teachers must consider learners’ If the teacher did not determine the learning styles and multiple multiple intelligences of the students, they intelligences and so come up with a might not be enhance and develop their variety of ways of assessing learning. skills because intelligence is acquired depending on their environment and experiences.5. Give some positive feedback with not Positive feedback can boost self-esteem, if so good ones. this is not observed especially with not good ones; the consequence is their self confident will be degraded. And giving of positive feedback motivates students.6. Emphasize on self assessment. Learning is personal process, then let the learners assess on their own with certain criteria. Let them be aware and reflect on their own progress because if this is not observed, the learners may compare themselves with other instead of testing their own improvement.7.

  7. 7. Learning Assessment StrategiesMy ReflectionAs a student, do I remember any incident when any of these principles was or wereviolated by my teacher? How did it affect my classmates and me? One thing was on my mind whenever I read or heard the Principles of Assessmentof Learning because of the scenario happened way back in my high school days. Theprinciple no. 5 of assessment of learning which is the “Give some positive feedbackalong with not so good”, was violated by my teacher in chemistry. In the midst of ourdiscussion, she called my name to answer the question thrown to the class. I tried toanswer the right thing I know and best way I possibly do but then unfortunately I did notgot exactly the point was. She then got mad and uttered improper words inside the classthat spoiled our remaining time in that subject. A word like “idiot” was cursed in my facein that moment of time. That word affects me so much; it degraded my confidence. Thisscene always in my mind whenever my teacher asked a question most especially whenthey call my name until this moment of time. I don’t have the guts anymore to expressmy idea because I doubt and I always think that what is in my mind is not appropriate andit is wrong. I don’t want to be embarrassed inside the class again just like what hadhappened in my high school time. By: Sheryl Mae D. Gamiao [7]
  8. 8. Learning Assessment StrategiesMy ReflectionAs a student, do I remember any incident when any of these principles was or wereviolated by my teacher? How did it affect my classmates and me? When I was in high school, I remember an incident that my teachers violatedsome of the principles of assessment. The principle of assessment that was violated is thegiving of positive feedback along with not so good ones. Giving of positive feedbacks is not only for the good ones but also for the notgood ones, so that they would be motivated to study well. This principle of assessmentthat was violated affects out performance inside the classroom. And instead of givingpositive feedback, our teachers give negative feedback which affects our self confidenceor self esteem. I feel that our teachers are favoring only those good ones in our classroom.And I also feel that there is discrimination inside the classroom which leads their studentsnot to enter their class regularly. Whenever there is recitation, I’m afraid to raise my handbecause I might not get the right answer and my teacher gives a negative feedback.Learning is ultimately the individuals’ responsibility. Learning will not succeed unlessindividual feels a strong sense of ownership and responsibility in the process itself. By: Jingky A. Pacis [8]
  9. 9. Learning Assessment StrategiesMy ReflectionAs a student, do I remember any incident when any of these principles was or wereviolated by my teacher? How did it affect my classmates and me? Yes, I remember that when I was in elementary, the principle that was violated bymy English teacher is “Give some positive feedback along with not so good ones”,instead she gives negative. Nobody is exempted even if you are bright or not so good, shecalls you idiot or moron publicly especially if you didn’t answer her question or if shedoesn’t like your answer/output. She gives also punishment maybe because she’s abrilliant teacher or a perfectionist. This affect our self confidence especially with mebecause I don’t have the guts to raise my hand even if I know the answer, just because Idon’t want to put into shame before; but as I grew up and became matured enough tounderstand I take it positively. For me, it is wise to give some positive feedback as wellas constructive criticisms. Praising the students on a job well done can boost morale tostudy and appreciate the value of success, furthermore, giving some constructivecriticisms on the areas they need to improved. As a student the criticism that we receivedjust take it positively, because the biggest room in the world is the room for improvementand improvement means success. By: Rubie Grace M. Reynoso [9]

Learning Assessment StrategiesMy PortfolioAttainable objectives must be preparedSelf assessment of teacher for the technique andStrategies must be appropriate so thatEvident outputs were achieved.Sharing of knowledge inside the class is requiredStudents understanding is testedMeasurement is needed to have meaningfulEvaluation regarding their performance.Note the parents of the childTo inform them about their performance.Observed equality in the class noFavoritism among the studentsLearn to appreciate your studentsEncourage them to participateAnd motivate them the best way you possibly doReturn to them their output butNever criticize nor judge becauseIntelligence of learners willNever be the same insteadGive them a chance to develop their skills and apply to their daily living.
