Reflective Teaching: Day 3 improved observation area “Assessment use”

Day 3: Discuss one “observation” area that you would like to improve on for your teacher evaluation.

I would like to improve on my use of assessments in my instruction. I feel I need to be more purposeful in planning my assessment calendar for class. Assessments should not be the end of instruction but a marker in the road map of learning. Time needs to be build in to use ALL classroom assessments in a formative matter. I can’t schedule an assessment and then expect to start teaching the next unit the next day. Time needs to be build into my calendar to look at the data an allow student to reflect on their learning. Students need the feedback from assessments to measure their progress towards their personal goals.
