It refers to what a person or group of people, believe, understand, and assume about the role of children in education and society (Martalock, 2012). Viewing the child as "innocent" or not capable beings influences teaching to restrict them from growing, learning and developing. What adults can learn from kids | Adora Svitak

5. Chapter 5: Assessing Student Progress

5.1. Assessment

5.1.1. Variety of ways to assess students Portfolios This is my favourite form of assessment because it shows the students progress in their learning which to me is the key to education. With technology, online portfolios to be shared with parents are even easier which allows for parent involvement. Apps such as Google classroom and See Saw. Homework As I am in the primary/junior program with a specialty in early years, I do not believe in assessing homework. I can see the value in higher education students are expected to complete their homework. Tests/Quizzes Issues: appropriateness of the test Issues: frequency I struggle with tests and quizzes in my philosophy because as a student myself, I despise tests because I don't believe they accurately reflected my learning. However because of standardize testing, I feel as though it is important to prepare them for tests. True False Matching questions Multiple-choice Summary / essay Short-answer Observations Main for of assessment in early years. Great way to assess PROCESS over PRODUCT

5.1.2. Ercikan true value of assessment is feedback, not grade Motivates students
