In this section, you will relate Dr. Paratore's lecture and your readings to assessment practices in classroom excerpts.

Video Segment.

Student Assessment Classroom Excerpts

Jeanne R. Paratore.

Find this segment approximately 15 minutes and 15 seconds after the begining of the video. Watch for about 6 1/2 minutes.

After watching the classroom excerpts, consider these questions:

  • How did each teacher use classroom routines to assess student performance?
  • What did each teacher learn about the student she was assessing?
  • How was this information documented?
  • How could this information be used to plan instruction?
  • How would you apply what you viewed to your own teaching?
