Making Learning Visible in Kindergarten Classrooms: Pedagogical Documentation as a Formative Assessment Technique
Buldu, Mehmet
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n7 p1439-1449 Oct 2010
This study investigated interactions between pedagogical documentation--a formative assessment technique and instructional intervention designed to increase student learning by recording children's experiences--and kindergarten children, families and teachers in the UAE. The study sample comprised six teachers in six kindergarten classrooms, 141 kindergarten children and 67 parents. The major data-gathering techniques were participant observation, semi-structured individual interviews, focus group interviews and parent questionnaire. The results revealed that pedagogical documentation has the potential to improve children's learning, contribute to teachers' awareness of learning processes and help parents gain a better understanding of learning processes in their children's education. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.)
