Two Measurements Used for Evaluating Student Learners in a Laboratory Child Development Program. Specifically: Art Area-Science Area.
This document provides measurement devices to help meet the needs of student learners for feedback on teaching behavior and the requirements of supervising teachers for information about student performance. (The term "student learners" as used here refers to high school students being trained in a laboratory program.) A master's project essay, the document also includes discussions of the provision of accurate feedback to student learners and the significance and ramifications of performance-based education. This discussion is followed by a summary statement of the philosophy and theoretical background which guide work with preschool children and student learners in the laboratory program. Also included in the essay is a two-part review of pertinent literature focusing on (1) the importance of feedback to the student learner and its relationship to accountability and competency-based education and (2) available measurement devices and elements to be considered when developing a measure. The body of the paper describes the program, setting, and course, reviewing course objectives formulated to guide the development of measures. Appendices include the measures devised, as well as other related materials. (RH)
