Assessment is one of my concerns when it comes to teaching and learning. It is not only because of my obligation as a teacher, but also many problems and issues that happened in my country related to the fairness of assessments. My experiences taught me that teaching is not only presenting the teaching material, but also giving the meaningful learning experiences for my students.
My experiences through out this semester, especially in the assessment and evaluation class really help me a lot to think about ideal assessments that I can apply. Assessments can help the teachers to create meaningful learning experiences to their students. Teachers can motivate their students to improve their performances. In addition, students can participate to assess their own learning progress. The important part of the application of the assessment is teacher willingness to work hard to apply the assessment which can appropriate to assess their students’ performance.
All in all, this class allowed me to become a more focused teacher. I believe that with the knowledges I have obtained during this course and with the changes I have made that I have improved immensely as a teacher.
