Pre-assessments establish a starting point for the teacher. The data collected from the pre-assessment drives the creation of targeted learning activities. Pre-assessment data is then compared to data collected throughout the activity to determine if students are progressing towards mastery of the learning objectives.
For this, create a pre-assessment activity to collect data on the identified student’s performance levels related to the objectives you created with your mentor teacher in your previous field experience.
With the cooperation of your mentor teacher, implement the pre-assessment activity to identify learning needs that can be included in your targeted teaching activity. Following the pre-assessment, meet with your mentor teacher to discuss the results and refine the activity you developed in the previous field experience that could be used to support the identified student’s learning of at least one identified objective.
In a 250-500 word summary, discuss the following:
How the results of the pre-assessment affect the revision of the targeted teaching activity.
How formative assessments of the identified student’s ongoing learning during an activity might be conducted.
How the pre-assessment and the learning objective are aligned.
How the student’s interests were considered when designing the pre-assessment and the targeted teaching activity.
How you plan to implement what you observed in your future teaching practice.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
