During practicum 491, I assessed my Kindergarten students using my own personalized rubric for the subject of science on the unit of Arctic animals. I based student’s work off effort, completion, and name.
I assessed Kindergarten students on their counting skills. I had students count how many pinecones, ornaments, Christmas trees, snowflakes, and reindeers were in the sensory bin. I assessed them based on if they could count correctly in order. This was a great way to assess students and to have that one-on-one time with my students.
For assessment class, we as students got to assess our own journal reflections after we were done them. It was interesting because when do you ever get to assess your own learning? I find that I was much harder on myself but that naturally happens with most individuals. It was a great way to learn about assessment by doing it on ourselves.
