What is assessment? How does it differ from evaluation?
  • Assessment:
    • Focuses on learning, teaching and outcomes
    • Provides information for improving learning and teaching
    • Interactive process
    • Information is learner-centered; not graded
  • Evaluation:
    • Focuses on grades or judgment
    • Is summative and gauges quality
    • Judgmental and product-oriented

why is assessment important
Why is assessment important?
  • Assessment …
    • Makes us set goals
    • Determines whether or not our goals are being met
    • Asks us to be accountable
    • Inspires us to become better!
  • Who are we, as members of the Clinical Faculty, assessing?
    • Early Career Teachers
    • Teacher Candidates (student teachers)
    • Ourselves: are we good mentors, communicators, and models of the best of our profession?

Research shows….
  • Teaching and learning must be interactive. We can learn about progress and difficulties in a variety of ways.
    • Assessment provides information that should be used as feedback to modify one’s actions
  • Not only should teachers assess their students or the teacher candidates they supervise, but teachers must engage in meaningful reflection—including self-reflection
    • A disposition toward reflection—and a good sense of when the teacher needs to step back and think deeply—should be part of all teachers' tool boxes!
    • Research (Constantino & De Lorenzo, 2001; Danielson & McGreal, 2000; Glickman, 2002; Lambert, 2003) substantiates the role of reflection in teachers' professional growth.
