Indicator 38 - Monitor Student Performance UETS 5c., 7b.
Effective teachers monitor and actively guide student acquisition of knowledge and skills by prompting, elaborating on, or re-teaching, academic concepts based on student performance. Through monitoring student performance, teachers direct instruction to help all students achieve increased levels of performance and understanding.
- Monitor student understanding and performance by asking specific questions or asking students to summarize a particular point.
- Hold students accountable for the completion of their work.
- Use guided practice to check student learning. Ask questions and circulate while students work at their desks.
- Regularly review student records, test scores and assignment completion, to ascertain potential long-term trends, positive or negative.
- Question students individually, especially students who appear to be having problems, and do not rely on class wide responses to determine student understanding.
- Ask students to show you how to do a skill, or explain how to complete a problem.
- Make specific comments to students about their work.
