Transcript of Learning, Teaching and Assessment

Numeracy & Literacy Pedagogies Lesson Plan Scheme of Work Is there something in every lesson for: Analyse, with guidance, the role of a teacher in the Lifelong Learning Sector Analyse, with guidance, own assessment practices and
make reasonable adjustments for a range of disabilities Demonstrate the ability to effectively & coherently plan a series of teaching sessions TEACHING CYCLE How ready are your learners to learn? Is there a balance of teacher & learner activity? Factors Affecting my Roles & Responsibilities Legislation Equality & Diversity - Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) - Equality Act (2010) - Copyright Designs & Patents Act (1988) - Data Protection Act (1998) - Disability Discrimination Act (1995) - Childrens Act (2004) - Every Learner Matters Equality: A state of fair treatment that is the right
of all the people regardless of the differences in, for example, culture, ability, gender, race, religion, wealth, sexual orientation, or any other group characteristic.
(Wilson, 2012:151) Where does the teachers role end and the specialists begin? (Wilson, 2009:153)

Difficult to be absolute If you promise to do something.......DO IT!

Specialists Assume nothing!

Legislation Integrity & Confidentiality Points of Referral Assessment A way of finding out if learning has taken place, it enables you, the assessor, to ascertain if your learner has gained the required skills & knowledge needed at a given point towards a course or qualification."
(Gravells 2008:75) Blooms Taxonomy of Learning Differentiation Disability Methods Questions? Introduced in 2004 to develop inclusive approaches to addressing the language, literacy & numeracy needs of learners. "Functional skills are practical skills in English, ICT and Mathematics, that allow individuals to work confidently, effectively and independently in life"
(Tummons, 2005:18) Minimum Core Aims: Objectives Engaging & Motivating Edexcel "A general expression of intent"
(Cohen et al, 1977:110) "Characterised by greater precision & specificity"
(Cohen et al, 1977:110) Aims:

- Understand joints in the skeleton

- Understand the muscular system

- Understand the energy systems & their relation to exercise


- Describe the classification of joints
- Describe the structure of a synovial joint

- Identify the three types of muscle tissue
- Identify how muscles attach to the skeleton

- State the characteristics for each energy system

- Describe how carbohydrates, fats & proteins are used in the production of energy Example of CYQ Aims & Objectives: Experiential Learning Multi-Sensory Assessment for Learning e - Learning & technology Learning Conversations Co-operative Learning Differentiation Modelling Theory to Practice Induction Days Rules Boundaries Interview Standards What has a negative impact on this?

Suitable time for exam/test? Evaluation Quality Process Benjamin Bloom

".....must only repeat the instructions of the question paper or questions when a candidate indicates a specific need for help" A Reader... Scribe/Voice Activated Software A Scribe.... "...must write or type accurately, and at a reasonable speed, what the candidate has said, (except in an examination requiring word processing where a scribe will not be permitted)" A Practical Assistant... "...must perform practical tasks according to the candidate’s instructions, unless the skill to be performed is the focus of the assessment, (in which case the practical assistant will not be permitted) or the procedure would be unsafe"
A centre must ensure the following records are available to the EQA:

• Dated record of each learner’s enrolment into the centre’s programme

• Dated record of each learner’s registration with CYQ

• Dated record of each learner’s certification details once completed

• All relevant information (dated) relating to learners requiring reasonable adjustments/special considerations

• All relevant information (dated) relating to a learner’s appeal, including copies of documented evidence identifying the nature, date and circumstances surrounding the original notification along with resulting action plans CYQ Record Keeping Guidance CYQ http://www.cyq.org.uk/files/reasonable-assessment-and-special-consideration-procedure.pdf See Appendix 4 Knowledge of reasonable adjustments Better training/induction Improvement in Differentiation - Higher Order Teacher Observations? - Formative Assessment I am yet to be involved in Summative Assessment Subject specific initial assessment?: Communication Skills - Presentation?

Medal & a Mission Important for students to know how to improve Important for students to know where they are currently Help clarify what good performance is: - Showcasing good example of work
- Self assessment/reflection & feedback sheets Help students to learn how to self-assess, direct their own learning & support the learning of others - Self reflection & formative practical peer assessment Provide students with opportunities to act on feedback - Public Service students - Feedback to attain
