2.3 STUDENT DEVELOPMENT PLAN

 

Assessment

 

A well-structured curriculum should enable the school to follow a procedure of teaching intervention, incorporating assessment, programme planning and evaluation. To achieve this aim, criterion-referenced assessment designed by the teacher is recommended. Assessment should not be seen as something external to the learning process or something added on at the end of a learning sequence simply for administrative purposes or as a means of reporting to parents. Rather, it is an integral part of effective learning, whereby the children are provided with feedback on their progress. The teacher should plan in his scheme of work the learning experiences which he will provide for the children. Similarly, as part of his scheme of work, he should also plan the assessment of the children’s progress.

 

Purposes of Assessments:

 

A) To identify the children's learning needs

B) To help the teacher plan educational programmes for the children;

C) To indicate which specific educational objectives have or have not been achieved;

D) To serve as continuous evaluation.

 

When evaluating the children's performance in terms of specific criteria set, the teacher

has to analyze the curriculum and the method of instruction used before he can develop

appropriate assessment to identify the children's learning needs.

 

In order to gather relevant information and collect observational data, assessment designed by the teacher should be used to measure the children's specific skills and abilities. The assessment may be in the form of checklists, paper-pencil tests, interviews or observation of the children engaged in activities. They should be individually administered both at the beginning and at the

 

 

 

end of the teaching period, so that the children's progress can be measured. The assessment results will then reflect the children's strengths and weaknesses. Assessment is thus an important part of the teaching process.

 Value education has been mainly expressed in terms of development of values and virtues like honesty, self-control, respect, responsibility, loyalty for personality/character development of the individual per se without situating them in the prevailing social, cultural realities and conditions.

 

Values should not be treated as ideal concepts but as ‘empowering tools’ which are helpful in meeting the challenges of the contemporary social world-be it religious fundamentalism, environmental degradation, multi-cultural conflicts, misuse of science and technology, inequalities, ill effects of mass media, globalization, commercialization and so on. From broader perspective, the aim of value education is linked with the fundamental question of what education itself is meant for. From individual’s perspective, the purpose is to enable students achieve personal fulfillment for success in life and work. From societal perspectives, education aims to prepare young people to contribute to the society/nation and world around. In neither case however, education is to be perceived as an outcome but as an experience in itself, which will enable student to live safe, healthy and fruitful life and become responsible citizens who make positive contributions to the society.

Subject Enrichment Activities

These are subject-specific activities aimed at enhancing the understanding and skill of the students. These activities are to be carried out throughout the term; however, they should be evaluated at the term-end.
