Anecdotal Records: A Successful Tool in the English Language Teaching and Learning
Whitehead, Evangelin Arulselvi
Excellence in Education Journal, v9 n3 p97-108 Fall 2020
A variety of strategies and tools are used to assess students' learning on an ongoing basis in the context of everyday classroom experiences. Assessment information provides the foundation for decision making and planning for instruction and learning. This paper discusses about using Anecdotal Records as a tool to observe students' progress in the learning of English language. Taken regularly, anecdotal records become not only a vehicle for planning instruction and documenting progress, but they also tell the story of every student. Students scored average and below average marks are the target participants of this study. The average and below average students of a particular course were selected based on their marks obtained in Quiz I and proper anecdotal records were maintained for these students to analyze their progress in studies throughout one full semester. The overall observation of the survey reveals the fact that maintaining anecdotal records is likely to encourage them to learn English language.
