Standard # 6 Assessment

INTASC Standard # 6: The teacher understands and uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress, and to guide the teacher’s and learner’s decision making.

INTASC Standard Interpretation: Family and Consumer Science is not a field that falls under standardized testing, it falls into a far more important category, success in life. I will seek to use multiple modalities to access learning, such as journals, projects, and portfolios. I will help students track their personal growth through personal goal setting with emphasis on applying the TEKS to their own lives.


Is testing necessary for assessing learning

INTASC Standard Reflection:

This is an essay I wrote that gives a brief look into my philosophy regarding the assessment of learning. I look forward to guiding students toward a better understanding of how they can personally become successful. I want students to seek meaning for themselves more than anything else, I prefer assignments that allow for self reflection, this way the students can measure their own learning. I will serve as a guide to assist them in setting and reaching goals they can measure both now and through their lives outside of a classroom.
