DESCRIPTION OF HOW ASSESSMENT METHOD WAS USED
(Include personal observations and comments below the description)
Reading
retell
The pupils are asked to retell the reading materials they
have read.
 Writing home reading
report
The pupils are asked to write a paragraph about a particular
topic.
 Group discussion


The pupils were given the time to share their
personal views about a particular topic and discuss it
or share it in the class.

Analysis
1. Was there a variety of assessment methods used by the teacher? How relevant was/were
the assessment method/s used?
Yes, there are assessment tools or methods used by the teacher relevant to the topic
but, I think the assessments used are not really enough in assessing pupils’ learning. Because, it
is more on traditional assessments it is really good if it is more on authentic assessments for
them to be able to retain the topics easily.

2. Do you think the expected students’ learning behaviours indicated in the objectives were
properly and appropriately assessed through those assessment methods?
Yes, it is properly and appropriately assessed because the results of the
assessment is good and and I can see that the pupils have really learned from
their discussion or from the topic taught to them.

My Reflections
Being a teacher it is our responsible to make an appropriate assessment
tools to be used in assessing students’ learning inside the classroom not just to
test or to measure their learning or knowledge they have acquired but, also to
measure how effective we are as a teacher. Especially in elementary that we
really need to do a great effort for us to know if we really have shared or impart
knowledge to the young minds.

Reflection
Write your personal reflection of thoughts and feelings regarding Peace Concept on
Focus. Share your reflection with your FS teacher and classmates.
If you are a teacher you should have the attitude of being fair or have the concept of
fairness. Fairness which means you needs to be equal in dealing your students/pupils all the
time. Like, in giving compliment and feedback to them, also you should be fair in making your
assessment tool, you should make an assessment that corresponds to the level capability of
your pupils/students. Because there are learners who are bright or intelligent and there are
also who are slow learners and late bloomer learners.

Episode 3
“LOG ME”






My Target
At the end of this activity, I will be informed on the principles of authentic assessment
and its usefulness in the classroom.
My way
Authentic assesment is an alternative way of assessing student’s learning. To be able to use it,
you must first have deep understanding of it.

My Review notes
Authentic Assessment in Action
At Sammamish High School, our staffs have dedicated our professional development to building expertise
in the key elements of problem-based learning. Previous blog entries by my colleagues have given
an overview of this process, as well as exploring how we include student voice and work withauthentic
problems. Another crucial element of successful problem-based learning is using authentic assessment
throughout all stages of a unit to constantly evaluate and improve student learning
Our staffs are still discovering how to best translate cutting edge assessment techniques into old-
fashioned reporting practices. The answers aren't necessarily obvious or easy, but our early returns
suggest that the gains in student learning are certainly worth the effort.

 Nowadays there are few teachers who are using the traditional assessment tools in
assessing students learning because, we cannot really deny the fact that using
authentic assessment tools is a great help for the pupils/students to gain more
knowledge and it is easy for the learners to retain the lessons they have discussed
because they have experience it or they are hands on.
What is your most meaningful learning from this activity?
 My most meaningful learning from this activity is, through this I am able to know
that authentic assessment is a very helpful tool in assessing student’s performance
or learning in school that we should not depend on traditional way of giving
assessments because, authentic assessment can make the learners think or they
will be able to think comprehensively.






What were your personal strategies in choosing relevant articles to read?
 My personal strategies in choosing articles to read are. First i choose those
articles that can catch my attention either in the image that are in the
article or the topic of it also, those that are relevant and I can relate with
and an article which I can get learning on it.



What are your insights and feelings about new trends in classroom assessment?
12



Question: Do you use authentic assessment in your class?
Answer: Yes, I use authentic assessment in my class so, I would know if my pupils have really
learned by letting them show a demonstration or tell about their learning.
Question: How do you assess group activities in the classroom?
Answer: I assess it by giving them time to think about the topic I have given to them and by
letting them share their thoughts and opinions to their respective groups and after the sharing
of ideas I am letting them speak in the whole class of what they have discussed or I am letting
them demonstrate it on the front it depends on the activity I have given to them.
Question: Is it good to use variety of assessment methods or assessment tools in the
classroom?
Answer: Yes, it is good that we use variety of assessments methods and tools in the
classroom for us to really measure the strengths and weaknesses of the learner.
Question: How can we say that an assessment tool is accurate and valid?
Answer: We can say that an assessment is accurate and valid if it really measures the learning
of the pupils/students and it connects on the topic you have discussed to the learner.





How did you feel about the teacher’s experience in the use of authentic assessment?

 I think the use of authentic assessment by the teacher in her class is really a big
help and a great factor in giving the learner a good learning process.


What do you think have been the gains enjoyed by the teacher and his/her students from
using authentic assessment?

 I think the gains enjoyed by teacher and students in using authentic assessment
are. First, the students enjoyed different experiences and as the same time they
are learning, for the teacher, she will enjoy the performances and presentation of
her pupils and at the same she will easily know if her pupils have learned. And the
pupils will get a variety opinions and ideas which they will enjoy or use in their daily
lives, and for the teacher, she will also learn from her students.


MY INTERVIEW NOTES
REFLECTIVE JOURNAL

Which part of the teacher’s use of authentic assessment do you feel like improving or
revising?
 I think the teacher’s use of authentic assessment that I feel like improving is in the
way that she use the assessment continuously and let the learners know that
experiences is still the best teacher and also in the way that she keeps on searching
for the best assessments for her pupils/learners and make that assessment a more
enjoyable.

Write your personal reflection of thoughts and feelings about your personal strategies
for making your efforts successful in this part of your FS.

 In making this part of my field study I realized that being a teacher is not really an easy
job. Because you need to look and search for an appropriate assessments for your
students but, at the end it feels so good that after your hardships in making the
assessments you would see the worth of it if your pupils/students have gain or learned
from you. After answering this part of the field study I have learned that using
appropriate assessment can really help in the success of the transformations of the child
and in transferring of knowledge from the teacher to students, from students to teacher
and from students to students.

Reflections
Write your reflection of thoughts, feelings, personal learning strategies, insights or
new understanding from your experience in using authentic assessment. Then share your
reflection with your FS teacher and classmates. Also draw some insights from your
classmates’ sharing.
After answering all the questions in this field study I realized that as a
future teacher we should be more observant and give more attention to our
pupils/students because all of them have a different characteristics and
capabilities that we should enhance through the use of different methods,
strategies and assessment tools. Also, after answering this field study I
understand how a teacher should be in dealing his/her pupils. And through this
I have learned many things that I can use when I am already in the field of
teaching. That in giving assessment is a task that we need to think and
examine carefully and we should based it on the learners and the learning
objectives for it to be successfully done.

Mabini Elementary School is located at Mabini Street beside the
CENECO. This school provides a conducive environment for the learning
process of the pupils and every teacher of this institution is approachable
and willing to help you if you need something or you need their help. In this
institution I understand how important the role of each person. The
teachers, faculty and the principal because, without the teachers the
institution is nothing and also the principal who has a great task to be done
under her supervision that without her full dedication and giving importance
to each person of the school all of it are just useless.
The Mabini institution help me realized and understand how a

.
3. Record Keeping The teacher makes
sure that she checks
the attendance
before she starts the
class. And records the
scores of her pupils.
The checking of
attendance before
starting the class and
keeping their scores is
good for the reason
that you would be
able to know or
monitor your
student’s capabilities.
She should update
the grade or scores of
her pupils.
4. Physical
Environment
She makes sure that
she provides a
conducive
environment for the
learning process of
her pupils.
Providing a conducive
environment is really
important for them to
be comfortable while
learning.
She should maintain
and always makes
sure that everything
in the classroom is
safe.
5. Discipline The teacher
disciplines her pupils
properly.
Disciplining your
learners is very
important for you to
maintain a peace
environment.
She should always
maintain the peace
and order inside the
classroom.
6. Routines They have well
planned routines
inside the classroom.
Which the teacher
makes sure that the
Having well planned
routines is good in
order for the students
to develop their
initiative and
They should continue
their daily routines
and also improve it.

daily routines are
done properly.
independent in doing
the tasks inside the
classroom.
Analysis
1. In what area of classroom management was the teacher most effective? Which of the
supportive measures is effective? Why?
 The teacher is most effective in the physical environment of the classroom
because she makes sure that everything is in proper places and she makes sure
that her pupils are comfortable inside the classroom so that the process learning is
continuous.

2. In what area of classroom management was the teacher least effective? Which supportive
measures were not effective?
 Maybe, she is least effective in disciplining her learners. She disciplines them but,
not really that much, because sometimes she can’t control her pupils if they noisy or
doing something.
3. Suggest for more effective ways for your answer in number 2.
 I could suggest that she would give consequences to those who are not behaving. Or
talk to their parents about the behaviour of your child and make some strategies
that would help you to minimize their unusual behaviour.



Reflections
1. Describe at least 3-5 characteristics of a teacher who can establish a well managed
classroom?
 A teacher that can establish a well manage classroom is someone who knows
how to deal with the attitude or behaviour his/her pupils/students, someone
who is fair to all of her/his pupils/students and someone who is flexible in and
out of the school.
2. What characteristics do you have in present that can make you an effective classroom
manager? Elaborate how these characteristics can help you.
 I think the characteristic that I have that can make me an effective manager is
the attitude of being patient. Because we all know that being a teacher we
should always be patient in the attitude and behaviour of our pupils/students
34

that if they have done wrong you are not going to punish him/her but, you need
to give patience to listen to his/her complaints or his/her side why he/she have
done those things.
3. What characteristics do you have in present that can hamper you from becoming an
effective classroom manager? How can you overcome these characteristics?

 Maybe, being a flexible because sometimes I cannot do many things at the same
time or to be like this or that if needed. But, as a future teacher I would train
myself to be flexible in every situation that I may encounter.

Episode 3
THE TEACHER AND THE COMMUNITY












My Target

At the end of this episode, I will gain competence in identifying possible linkages
between the school and the community, particularly those that will help attain curricular goals.






Name of the School Observed: Mabini Elementary School
School Address: Mabini Street
Date of Visit:
 School’s Locality

The Mabini Elementary School is located at Mabini Street beside the CENECO.
It is accessible for public transportation and surrounded by different barangays where
most of the pupils of the school is staying.
 Issues/concerns/problems

I think the problem is the pollution wash out by different transportation use that can
make the pupils become polluted.

 Resources of the community

The school has many stores where pupils can buy foods or materials they needed in
school.
 Community Assistance/ service from the school
The community where the school is located helps the school in maintaining the peace
and order and if there are programs the parents are willing to help the school.


Analysis
1. Suggest new ways by which the school can creatively use the resources of the community.
I can say that a school can creatively use the resources of the community if the school
put concerns on the resources that a community have and both the community and the
school will connive to produce a good product.

2. How can the school address the issues/concerns and problems of the community?
The can address the issues/concerns and problems of the community by implementing
rules and policies according to the concerns and problems of the community.
3. What possible linkages can the community and school have?
The possible linkages that a community and that school should have is the cooperation
of the school and the people of the school, the principal, the faculty and staffs and also
the parents or the people of the community to have a unity for the successful of the
school and the community also.
Reflections

1. How did you feel while you were going around the community? What things did you learn
that you might have taken for granted before?
 While I am going around the community I really feel that the people there are giving
importance on the education of their children. And the thing that I have learned that I
have taken for granted before is, I regret those times when I am not socializing other
people which hopefully helps me in my daily life and in the future.
2. As a future teacher, what do you think will be your role in the community?
 As a future teacher, I think my role in the community is I will be standing as a leader
who will leads the community in every aspect. As we all know teachers are known to
37

be reliable in the community that whatever is task given to you are expected to do
the best thing in that possible situation and condition.

3. How will you encourage more community participation among teachers and students?
 I will be encouraging them by giving them benefits if a particular thing happens if both
the teachers and students would have a participation in a possible situation.

Reflections
(My Global Teacher Song)















41

Global teacher life-line
Now, I will instil and internalize the knowledge, skills and values
I have acquired from my previous and present teachers.
2 years from now, I will make sure that those acquired
knowledge will be used in my daily routines in life. And also I will
make sure that I would be able to pass the LET exam.
5years from now, I will be one of the admired teachers not only
in the Philippines but also in other country.
10 years from now, I have already a family and children whom
will continue what I have started and will support me in every path I
take, same that I would support them.

Below is a clip art essay on what a global teacher is. Examine each part of the clip art
essay. Think of a title for it. What message does it convey to you? Write a reflection on this.

42


Title
Are you a global teacher?

It’s Message:
The illustration or the clip art conveys that being a global teacher you should know
everything or you know every aspect of life. Like in the picture, you can see there is a
computer and book, it means that a teacher should not just depend on books but, also
he/she should get other opinions or additional information from the computer and
would not just stick in one information. Because a global teacher is not just concerned in
imparting knowledge but, how much knowledge she could share to his/her pupils to
make them knowledgeable one.
Next is, being a global teacher we should always have the love in teaching as well as to
our pupils as we love our own child, relative or parents. That, we should know the
strengths and weaknesses of each of our pupils/students.
Another, to be considered as global teacher you should be useful in the community
especially if there are activities in the said community and lastly, being a global teacher
you should be internationally and globally competent, that wherever you go you are
always excelling in your own way or through the skills, knowledge and values that you
have.

My Reflection:
As a global teacher you have a great responsibility in school, to your pupils/student and
to the community. As a global teacher you should not just give your service but, give it
with passion and dedication. And also as a global teacher you should be molded as a
wholesome individual that wherever you go you will still bring and recognize by people
for what you are as a teacher.
