The end of the Assessment class, independent study,
ECED 2070, Fall 2006
Chapter 11 -- Using Technology to Look at Sociodramatic Play

1. Read the chapter.

2. Add technology to your assessment types. Add advantages and disadvantages.

3. Look up these definitions and add them to your notebook:
audio recorders
video recorder
digital video cameras
informed consent

4. yeah. That's all for this chapter. It is pretty self-explanatory.

Chapter 12 -- Using Documentation for Child Abuse Suspicions and Looking at Self-Concept

1. Read the chapter.

2. Add documentation to your assessment types. Add advantages and disadvantages.

3. This chapter is more about abuse than assessment, but it is still important to always take note of the things that
you should do in suspected child abuse cases in your classroom. New laws say that each person should report
abuse directly, instead of going through channels at your workplace (i.e., not going to the principal or program
director, but reporting yourself). But I still recommend that even though you report, you still inform your boss. It will
cover your rear.

4. Look at the behavioral and physical indicators of abuse and how you can document them.  Make a note of these
in your notebook.

5. Take extra care to go over the tables on pages 292 and 293. Make notes if you need to, in your notebook.
Sometimes rewriting things make them more solidly in our memory. This is why I sometimes have you do "busy-
work" such as definitions.

6. Answer: If a child shows 2 or 3 of these symptoms, do you think that it will always indicate child abuse or

7. Look at the self-esteem stuff. It is pretty interesting.

Chapter 13 -- Using Program Assessments to Look at Children in Groups

1. Read the chapter.

2. Add Program Assessments to your assessment types and add advantages and disadvantages.

3. Do the exercise on page 314 (not the first one, but the second one right above the box "It Happened to ME". It
continues on page 316.

4. Look at the box "Choosing a Tool" on page 315. Make notes if you want. This is just to get you aware of the things
that may be evaluated in a program assessment.

5. Do the Program Assessment exercise on page 316.

6. Define these terms:
program evaluation
performance standards
license requirements

7. Look at the chart on page 324 about caretaker-child ratio. How does our state do in comparison to others? Are we proud or ashamed? Do you think that our
state has a reasonable ratio?

Chapter 14 -- Using the Portfolio to Conference with Families and Looking at the
Child's Interactions with Adults

1. Read the chapter.

2. Add portfolios to your assessment types and add advantages and disadvantages.

3. Good chapter. Hope you paid attention. It is quite important.

You should also read chapter 15, which is basically 3 1/2 pages, and then also peruse the appendixes. (appendices??) (appendi?) Oh well.
Final exam. Turn this and all of the above stuff in to me by December 10. I will grade them, and give you a final grade. Then I  will put your stuff back in the box
and you can pick it up whenever it is convenient for you. Thanks for being my students. I am sorry it was so hard for everyone. I meant for it to be a learning
