The 1 Way to Improve Student Behavior: Do you feel overwhelmed with all Assessing a student paperwork you have to complete each week?

Do you need a classroom management overhaul? And this is how I fixed both! When I first started teaching I spent hours on Thursday nights filling out behavior charts to send home in Friday Folders. It exhausts me just thinking about it. It was a lot of work and even more work when on Friday nights I got parent phone calls, and emails, or notes on Monday morning asking me why I rated their child less than excellent in certain areas.

Assessing a student

How could I save time? What would be a better way to communicate? One afternoon I looked out at my wonderful students and it became clear! It was time to hold them accountable for their behavior. I went home, revamped my form and came up with this Weekly Self-Assessment. By taking out the middleman and making this a conversation coming from the student, my whole week life changed!

The first few weeks we did this, I walked the class through each step. I would give these out at the end of the day on Thursday Folders in my school went home on Friday. I would guide them through putting the name, date, and talked them through each category.

If I spoke to you at least once every day then a 2. If you were reminded of the directions days a week, then give yourself a 3. If an adult had to remind you to follow directions only once this week a 4. And if no one had to remind you of the directions this week then congrats, give yourself a 5.

What you will find is that you will have more kids who are hard on themselves than easy. If this was the case, I just wrote a note. I think you were a little hard on yourself this week. You are doing a great job. For the ones who were too easy, I held a brief conference to have them edit their assessment to accurately reflect the week.

I also made a point of explaining any reasoning in the teacher comments. It only takes about conferences before they realize it is way easier to do it right the first time. I had some extra space so I added some lines for students to share anything they wanted.

Wow, so glad I had that space.


My quieter students began communicating with me in that space and I learned how funny, and thoughtful they were. I learned about the questions they wanted to ask, but were too afraid. To top it off, in the parent comments spot I encouraged parents to write a note to their child about the week.

The students really enjoyed reading the notes from their parents.Assessing Student Learning: A Common Sense Guide [Linda Suskie, Trudy W. Banta] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

How to Assess Students’ Learning and Performance.

File Cabinet

Learning takes place in students’ heads where it is invisible to others. This means that learning must be assessed through performance: what students can do with their learning. Assessing students’ performance can involve assessments that are formal or informal, high- or low-stakes, anonymous or public, individual or collective.

When you have to comment on a student's attitude and efforts within the classroom, it can become difficult to clearly assess their progress.
