Part 1: Pre-Assessment Using Non-Standardized Assessments
Begin this assignment by pre-assessing a small group of students as a continuation of your clinical field experience in Topic 4. In this field experience, you were asked to select a developmentally appropriate and engaging technology-based assessment that was implemented with your identified small group. After assessing the children, write a 250-500 word summary of the experience. Describe the academic area you assessed, the
assessment tool used, the results of the pre-assessment, and your considerations regarding differentiation (why you did or did not differentiate the assessment.) When recording the assessment results, keep the information confidential and use pseudonyms for the students.
Part 2: Design and Deliver a Lesson
In your Topic 5 field experience you were asked to design and deliver a lesson. Reflecting on your experience, you identified differentiations you would make to your lesson, assessment, and/or assessment procedures in the future. Revise and complete your lesson plan to reflect these differentiations.
Part 3 : Analyze Post-Assessment Data and Communicate the Assessment Results
After delivering the lesson and post-assessment, begin analyzing the pre- and post-assessment data. Select one student with exceptionalities to provide additional assistance at home. Write a 250-500-word letter to send home to the family of this student that provides feedback regarding his or her performance. This letter should include information regarding the assessment data and suggest a research-based at-home activity that the parents can facilitate to support their child’s development in the domain area. In addition provide the family a rationale as to why that specific activity is appropriate for meeting their child’s needs, including how the activity supports the child’s transition for the next grade level.
Submit the pre-assessment summary, the revised lesson plan, the post-assessment data, the family letter, and the rationale as one deliverable.
