"Care-Full Teaching".
Matuskey, Patricia Varan; Tango, Robert
The "Care-Full" teaching process described in this report is an assessment-oriented procedure which monitors the student's specific rate of growth toward defined learning objectives. First, the report briefly delineates eight steps in the process, indicating that teachers and counselors: (1) become aware of the need for assessment; (2) transform this perceived need into statements which specify what the assessment process is to accomplish; (3) specify decisions to be made with assessment information, e.g., whether a student is to be placed in a remedial or regular class; (4) specify judgements to be made, e.g., an estimate of a student's future academic or emotional behavior; (5) collect information; (6) interpret the data; (7) communicate the results to instructors in a manner which specifies student deficiencies and remediation methods; and (8) evaluate the effects of remediation. As a means of illustrating this assessment approach to instruction, the report concludes with a description of Precision Teaching, which involves counting the movements per minute of an activity that must have a beginning and end, and must be observable, measurable, and repeatable. This description includes criteria for determining appropriate activities for precision measurement; methods of recording student progress; and an outline of benefits gained by students and teachers through the Precision Teaching technique.
