to inform planning and instruction.
My methods of pre-assessment and assessment occur daily in my classroom. At the beginning of each unit, I use questioning, journal entries, and pre-tests to help determine the level my students are at. These different forms of assessment help determine exactly what I need to teach, in a unit to meet standards. During units, students are required to complete various projects and homework assignments to help me assess their levels of achievement. At the end of each unit, or subject area, I give written tests. After reviewing all of the student's scores I can reflect back on what test areas were low and need extra attention for next years classes. Assessment in physical education classes occur on a daily basis as well. Students in freshman physical education classes are taught stretching routines they are to do after warm up laps. I assess the quality of student's stretching and give them feedback when appropriate.
and assess students' skills.
I analyze and assess student's skill by using formative and summative assessment. It is important to evaluate students skills at the beginning of a unit or lesson, during daily activities involved with the unit or lesson, and finally at the completion of what the student's have learned. I like to use journal entries to not only find out what students already know, but to test them on what they have just learned the previous day and to a catch a glance of what is going on in their daily lives. Daily quizzes occur to help keep the knowledge that student's are learning fresh. Students have homework almost every night in my class and the homework corresponds with the reading the students have from the book. Guided reading activities are a common homework assignment for my students. Daily activities and projects are assigned to help enhance the students understanding of the topic being studied. At the completion of a unit or major topic of study in my class, students take a written test.
