Harmonizing Mandated Standards and Principles of Learning in Psychology (Evaluating Curricular Issues).
Teachers need to align learning opportunities with state-mandated objectives. This process should begin with assessing the curriculum, possibly through the use of a 10-point scale by teachers, administrators, support personnel, and parents. To implement the needed learning opportunities, tenets from educational psychology should be used in teaching and learning situations. To determine whether or not a teacher is implementing principles of educational psychology, a Likert scale may be devised to assess the quality of instruction. There are also many procedures available to assess student achievement, ranging from standardized tests to portfolios. (SLD)
