Four Question

Why are you participating in the assessments that you use with students?Can you share in explicit detail the value that you find in each assessment?Do you participate in assessments that you find no value in for students?Are you using an assessment you have no idea how to deliver, but are afraid to ask for help with?I would use these questions in my assessment to see where the child head is. Many children do things because they are told too. In my opinion you have to make sure the children are doing and thinking on their own. You can’t think for someone especially children because they have to learn in order to develop better and on their own. I think with these questions in mind you can correctly figure out where the child mind is and how they are thinking. What you need to know and what you should know about the child.  I would assess the children with these questions in mind because they are very helpful.

My Assessment

I think that I have failed my children with their assessment because I don’t have a n open mind when it comes to things. This is my first time assessing children and has to get use to the way things are being done. Some children learn better and faster than others which makes it hard to assess all the children the same.

My Thoughts

I agree that this is true. I think that if you are going to access the success of students than you should take the information you gether about them and use it to help the sictuation wether its make it better or not. I think my mindset has changed becaue it's people who may know or may not know more than others. You have to be willing to help the child. That in my opinion is the reason why people does these assessments. Which is to get to know what the children does and doesn't know and it can help them focus on how to help the child more. In the classroom, students can often answer the same questions, and they may have similar knowledge, but the patterns and connections between their intelligences stop there(Newman, R.)
