For EACH observed session produces a written evaluation to explain how own planning meets the individual needs of learners and ways in which teaching and learning plans can be adapted to meet the individual needs of learners. Include enough information to make it clear that you understand the teaching and learning processes that have been taking place.

Develop and include in your teaching practice portfolio specific examples of how you have (or would have) adopted session plans for a minimum of TWO contrasting learners, or a particular group of learners.
Include in the teaching practice portfolio two examples of resources, including technology where appropriate, to show how you have adapted an original resource to meet the different needs of individual learners.

TASK -6Turnitin Submission)
Produce a table listing a minimum of 10 different types of assessment and against each
type briefly explain the purpose and the assessment outcome.
As part of the three observed teaching practice sessions, select and include an example of at least ONE different assessment type and method for each session.
For EACH assessment activity provide evidence to show how:
• It meets the needs of your students and
• It produces assessment evidence that is valid, reliable, sufficient, authentic and current.
Use research to help your understanding or assessment, and referring to the practical examples from your teaching practice observations,
provide a written report to analyses the effectiveness of the assessment methods, used in your specialist area, ( Health and social care area) in meeting the individual needs of your learners e:g special need . (AC- 6.1, AC- 6.2)

Assessment Types SAMPLES
I used three types of assessments for the learner before the commencement of theteaching diagnostic, formative, and summative through observation and/or surveying the students, determine whether or not the activity should be used again (or modified).
• Formative assessment. Formative assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning. …
• Summative assessment. …
• ‘Authentic’ or work-integrated assessment. …
• Diagnostic assessment. …
• Dynamic assessment. …
• Synoptic assessment. …
• Criterion referenced assessment. …
• Ipsative assessment.
The summative assessment was used to evaluate learner learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard I would use exam or mark test to evaluate their understanding i:e summative assessments include: a midterm exam.
Formative: Given throughout the learning process, this would be use to seek how learner is progressing through a certain learning .Summative: would be given to the learner at the end of year.
Authentic’ or work-integrated assessment is an assessment where the tasks and conditions are more closely aligned to what you would experience within employment. This form of assessment is designed to develop learner’s skills and competencies alongside academic progression. As a teacher I would also use online Assessment to design an assessment using a PC or tablet device.
Like formative assessment, diagnostic assessment is intended to improve the learner’s experience and their level of achievement. However, diagnostic assessment looks backwards rather than forwards. It assesses what the learner already knows and/or the nature of difficulties that the learner might have, which, if undiagnosed, might limit their engagement in new learning. It is often used before teaching or when a problem arises.
Dynamic assessment measures what the student achieves when given some teaching in an unfamiliar topic or field. An example might be assessment of how much Swedish is learnt in a short block of teaching to students who have no prior knowledge of the language. It can be useful to assess potential for specific learning in the absence of relevant prior attainment, or to assess general learning potential for students who have a particularly disadvantaged background. It is often used in advance of the main body of teaching.
Synoptic assessment encourages students to combine elements of their learning from different parts of a programme and to show their accumulated knowledge and understanding of a topic or subject area. A synoptic assessment normally enables students to show their ability to integrate and apply their skills, knowledge and understanding with breadth and depth in the subject. It can help to test a student’s capability of applying the knowledge and understanding gained in one part of a programme to increase their understanding in other parts of the programme, or across the programme as a whole . Synoptic assessment can be part of other forms of assessment.
Criterion referenced assessment
Each student’s achievement is judged against specific criteria. In principle no account is taken of how other students have performed. In practice, normative thinking can affect judgements of whether or not a specific criterion has been met. Reliability and validity should be assured through processes such as moderation, trial marking, and the collation of exemplars.
This is assessment against the student’s own previous standards. It can measure how well a particular task has been undertaken against the student’s average attainment, against their best work, or against their most recent piece of work. Ipsative assessment tends to correlate with effort, to promote effort-based attributions of success, and to enhance motivation to learn.

Marking and giving feedback
In order to provide meaningful feedback to students it is essential to understand:
• the purpose of assessments in a particular module
• what the assessment criteria are, and how they are applied
• how marks or grades are arrived at
It’s important to recognise that feedback is a two-way process. Whether given formally, in writing, in response to a particular assignment, in personal tutorials or even in more casual
Undertake a piece of individual research into different theories of communications and the impact on learning. You could include Piaget, Bernstein and Vygotsky as starting places for your research.
Use your individual research to produce a written report, using examples taken from your own teaching practice,
to analyse the benefits and limitations of the communication methods you use.

Approximately 1100 words – Written Assignment (excluding table of content and list of references)
TASK -8- (Portfolio Submission)
Use the feedback provided by tutor and mentor observations, peer and learner feedback – and your own session evaluations and individual learning – log entries to review the effectiveness of your own practice in all areas of inclusive teaching and learning in:
Use these sources of information – and any other occasion where you may have had verbal or written feedback on your teaching – to produce a written analysis the effectiveness of the range of teaching and learning approaches you have used in your own area of specialism in meeting the individual needs of at least THREE different specific learners.
Use your review from across the whole of your practice to identify areas for improvement in the three areas of planning, delivering and assessing inclusive teaching and learning.
