  2. 2. Session #1: Roles of Teachers and StudentsGOAL: At the end of this session, participants will understand the pedagogical intention of LEFs, and the roles played by teachers and students in implementing - and maximizing the benefits of - Learning and Evaluation Files.
  3. 3. Current evaluation practices: contributions from participantsEvaluation for and of learningWhat are some well known classroom evaluation practices?
  4. 4. PortfoliosWork portfolio: All drafts collected, without selection criteria;Learning portfolio: Proof of progress for each major stage of project or end-of-term;Portfolio of presentations: Finished products illustrating highest level of achievement attained for each stage of project;Digital portfolio: Integration of technology permitting continuous, collaborative interactions;Learning and Evaluation File: Combines all of the above.
  5. 5. Current evaluation practices: contributions from participantsBenefits of portfolioWhat do you think are some of the benefits of using LEFs?
  6. 6. Benefits of LEFs (Portfolios)Integrates the Learning and Evaluation ProcessBuilds autonomyDevelops reflexive practicesEncourages self-assessmentRequires self-monitoringImproves work methodsStructures IP program
  7. 7. Teachers need to know…Pedagogical models, strategies, and practices to helpstudents build responsibility, autonomy, and appropriateattitudes.Benefits of students taking responsibility for monitoring andassessing their own learning and evaluation process.Challenges associated with students taking responsibility formonitoring and assessing their own learning and evaluationprocess.
  8. 8. Roles of TeachersInterpret official requirements;Clarify expectations and communicate clearly;Understand process of monitoring, self-assessment and adjustment;Create and model reflexive environment;Acknowledge diverse learning and motivation styles;Support competency development.

  11. 11. Planning for evaluation of competency developmentThree report card periods for evaluation OFlearning.On-going feedback for evaluation FOR learning.Students working on one project for entire school year = evolving requirements for same elements as year progresses (i.e. project plan).Communicate above to students through examples of observable elements that evolve.
  12. 12. Selection of Evidence: Roles of StudentsIdentify evidence of learning that is relevant, sufficient, and representative;Determine what and when to select evidence of learning – reflexive practices; autonomy and responsibility;Develop attitudes associated withUse effective communication strategies to justify and explain evidence selected;Become self-reflective learners who monitor, assess, and adjust learning and evaluation processes.
  13. 13. Checklists: Co-constructing Selection CriteriaACTIVITY to be done with IP students:GOAL: Co-construct criteria for selectingevidence of learning. Before introducingLearning and Evaluation Files (LEFs) inIP classrooms, students must understandthe important role they play inthe implementation and use of LEFs, and in the overallevaluation of their own learning. Students will use co-constructed criteria to select evidence of learningthroughout the school year. 
  14. 14. Communication: Roles of TeachersCommunications concerning informal evaluations (for learning) formal evaluations (of learning)
  15. 15. ReflectionImportant role in selection ofevidence of learning and competencydevelopment.Reflexive classrooms: regular use ofreflection questions and plannedmoments of reflection.Priority given to development ofstudents’ meta-cognitive strategies.
  16. 16. ResourcesPlanning Tool Possible Uses: to add, change, adapt observable elements; to plan course and adjust teaching; to illustrate competency development to students.
  17. 17. ResourcesEvaluation Rubric Possible Uses: to verify observations (formative assessments) and competency development (summative evaluations).
  18. 18. ResourcesGraphic Organizers Possible Uses: to address specific challenges; to collect evidence of learning; to organize students’ ideas.
  19. 19. ResourcesReflection Questions Possible Uses: to address specific challenges; to help develop meta-cognitive strategies; to stimulate discussion.
  20. 20. ResourcesChecklists Possible Uses: to clarify evaluation criteria; to identify observable elements; to create shared expectations.
  21. 21. Resources Blogs Possible Uses: school board portal; Web site just for LEFs; IP virtual classroom; blogs or other resources selected by teacher.
  22. 22. Recording Tools: Paper and/or virtualSelf-assessment (journal entries, blog publications);Co-evaluation with classmates (reflection questions or graphic organizers);Feedback from teacher and peers (round table discussions);Selecting evidence of learning (interpretation, analysis, justification);Observations (notes, journal entries, blog publications);Interviews (notes, checklists);Blog entries (feedback, comments, interactions, reinvestment).
  23. 23. Virtual classrooms Virtual extension of IP classroom. Classroom blog animated by the teacher. Blogs for students. Available any time, from any Internet connection. Available for teachers and students. Place for students to store evidence of learning. Place for teachers to assess, offer feedback on evidence of learning.
  24. 24. ValidationEffectiveness of LEFs –indicators for assessing, monitoring, and regulating implementation of LEFs in classrooms: Pedagogical understanding (teacher and student); Involvement (teacher and student); Use of accompanying resources (teacher and student); Winning practices (teacher and student); Development of autonomy and responsibility (student); Community of practice (teacher).
  25. 25. Current evaluation practices: contributions from participantsCommunity of practice:What will you change for next year?What resources are you lacking?Do you have the accompaniment you need(consultant, mentor, MELS, colleagues, etc.)?
