  MY PHILOSOPHY OF ASSESSING LEARNING 1   My Philosophy of Assessing Learning  Alicia Duran Salt Lake Community College  April 2018  MY PHILOSOPHY OF ASSESSING LEARNING 2   My Philosophy of Assessing Learning I believe assessments are crucial to an effective education, however, I do not  believe that assessment should be focused solely on memorization. Assessment are a good way to measure the students’ mastery as well as the level understanding of a topic, and they are a way to determine which areas need reinforcement. In order to accomplish this, as a teacher, I must teach my students critical thinking and analytical skills that  will allow them to excel during these types of tests. Subsequently, the tests I administer should focus mainly on understanding rather than simply short-term memorization. I believe that not all students learn the same way and at the same pace, therefore, they should not be assessed in the same way. Meaning that my students will be given the opportunity to decide which type of assessment they are most comfortable with. Formative and summative assessments provide many alternatives to the traditional pen-and-paper evaluation; some of these include oral presentations, end-of-unit projects, teacher-student interviews, a written assignment, etc. These are effective alternatives to test the students’ knowledge , understanding, and mastery of a topic. I believe that, if given properly, the feedback I give to my student on their assessments should encourage them to do better on their next test. The feedback will inform students of the changes and improvements that can be made, and it will also highlight their strengths. Furthermore, my instruction and feedback will be detailed enough so that my students know what exactly it is that I am asking for, what areas they need to improve on, and what are the things that they have done correctly.  MY PHILOSOPHY OF ASSESSING LEARNING 3   Lastly, I believe that fair does not always mean equal; as I mentioned before my students will be offered alternatives ways of testing. Moreover, assessment practices may be altered slightly depending on the class ’ needs,  as a whole, or on an individual student basis when needed.
