ASSIGNMENT No. 1
- 1 What is the role of teacher in classroom assessment? Write a detailed note
The role of the teacher is to instruct students, manage behavior, encourage student learning and assess progress. The teacher is the leader in the classroom and maintains responsibility for the students’ learning and safety throughout the school day.
The teacher sets the tone in the classroom. She is responsible for creating an environment that allows students to learn and grow. Teachers achieve this by setting up a stimulating, appealing classroom with procedures and routines.
Before students get to the classroom, the teacher needs lesson plans. These plans break down the steps for every lesson the teacher uses for instruction to ensure all learning objectives are met. Lesson plans also help the teacher stay organized while teaching. The lessons a teacher creates provide the framework for instructing students and giving them practice on the new skills they learn.
Q.2 Define learning outcomes and objectives. Differentiate between them.
Learning Objectives & Outcomes
Course objectives are clear and concise statements that describe what you intend your students to learn by the end of the course. The difference between course objectives and learning outcomes—and the reason these terms are so often conflated with each other—is the former describes an intended state (what you hope your students will learn), whereas the latter expresses a present or observed state (what your students actually learned). think first about what is essential that students know or be able to do after the course or program – what students need to know and could make powerful use of to enhance their lives and more effectively contribute to society. We believe that such reflection will lead instructors to focus on a broad synthesis of abilities that combine knowledge, skills and values into a whole that reflects how people really use knowledge.” So, what’s a learning outcome anyway? Mark Battersby, p. 1
Learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge or skills students should acquire by the end of a particular assignment, class, course, or program, and help students understand why that knowledge and those skills will be useful to them. They focus on the context and potential applications of knowledge and skills, help students connect learning in various contexts, and help guide assessment and evaluation.
