Assessing Teaching Behaviors through Video Portfolios in Field Experiences.
Zelazek, John R.; And Others
This paper describes the redesign of the goals and objectives of a secondary teacher education program employing authentic assessment. A sophomore level field experience course was identified to run a pilot study of an assessment process that employed video portfolios for evaluation of students' teaching behaviors. The videotapes set the basis (with a measurable and observable baseline) for developing a portfolio to be used throughout the program and during future job interviews. Following a review of the literature, reflecting a national movement to provide more measurable and clearly defined teaching outcomes, the following steps of the redesign are highlighted: (1) development and refinement of program goals and objectives; (2) development of assessment instruments; and (3) collaborative assessment efforts with school districts. Steps which are to be completed over the next three years are also presented. Appendixes provide a list of assessment systems tasks; a syllabus entry for the Introductory Field Experience Course; field experience guidelines for students enrolled in the field experience course; a student evaluation form; a copy of a cover letter addressed to cooperating teachers explaining the teaching behavior assessment; and a Field Experience Performance Evaluation instrument.
