Abstract/Notes: Uses an Ohio Montessori philosophy statement as a framework to advocate for Montessori-appropriate assessment in public schools. Evaluates the effects of the Ohio Proficiency Test in grades 4 and 6 on practice of the Montessori philosophy. Finds that proficiency testing does not support the Montessori philosophy statement in key areas, instead mandating a didactic approach. (KDFB)

Abstract/Notes: Intended for teachers who have asked for information on how to manage a multi-age classroom, this book outlines the ideal classroom as it exists when all of the multi-age components are put in place. Opening sections of the guide discuss creating the multi-age classroom, and the advantages and principles of multi-age instruction. The next sections provide overviews of classroom organization, instructional strategies, curriculum, assessment and evaluation, and getting started. Each of these sections includes the overview, results of the changes brought about by multi-age instruction, and advice from the experts. Additional sections address scheduling, grouping strategies, working with Bloom's taxonomy, projects for active learners, using novels for literature instruction, and helping children discover themselves and others.

Abstract/Notes: This research explored student evaluation practices used by Montessori elementary teachers. The Montessori teaching method emphasized students learning at their own pace within a prepared environment where the teacher's role was somewhat different compared to traditional classroom settings. Both traditional and alternative methods of student assessment were utilized by Montessori teachers (e.g., anecdotal records, informal conferences with students, observation of students, one-to-one interview with students, checklists of lessons, demonstration of skill mastery, and standardized achievement tests). The methodology and reasoning behind student evaluation was not well understood by the educational community, and today's dynamic cultural environment demands better attention to this subject. Following a literature review of assessment practices, analysis consisted of sampling member schools of the American Montessori Society (AMS). A questionnaire was submitted to 241 eligible AMS member schools with elementary programs across the United States, and 108 responses (representing 30% of the eligible schools) were collected. The questionnaire's items (27 total questions) were refined to 16 research questions which were analyzed using both quantitative and qualitative methods. A number of results were produced. The two most prominent were: Montessori elementary teachers used more alternative than traditional methods of assessment practices; and, the factors that influenced the assessment practices used by Montessori teachers were the make up (student:teacher ratio, individual student's needs, multi-aged range) of students in the classroom and the Montessori method of education. Other results of this study included: Montessori schools used standardized achievement tests but individual respondents were not convinced they fit the Montessori method of teaching; and, the combination of non-graded report cards, anecdotal records, and student portfolios were successful reporting practices for parent teacher conference. The study concluded with identifying several areas of assessment practice where future research and professional development may benefit Montessori administrators, teachers, students, and parents.

Abstract/Notes: Tato diplomová práce se zabývá školním hodnocením. Práce je rozdělena na dvě části, a to teoretickou a praktickou. V teoretické části dochází nejprve k vysvětlení Montessori pedagogiky a jejich principů jako jsou svoboda dětí, předem připravené prostředí či principy věkové heterogenity. Dále se zde pojednává o didaktickém materiálu, které tyto typy škol využívají. Poslední částí této kapitoly je postavení učitelů a dospělých ve škole. Poté následuje kapitola o hodnocení. Dochází zde k vymezení jeho definice, jaké funkce hodnocení existují a také typy, které jsou ve školách využívány. V neposlední řadě pak formy hodnocení, tedy klasifikace pomocí známek a slovní hodnocení. Druhou částí této práce je praktická část. Cílem praktické části je najít odlišnosti ve způsobu hodnocení ve dvou typech základních škol, tedy v Montessori základní škole a běžné základní škole a také zjistit, které typy hodnocení, o kterých pojednává teoretická část, jsou v hodinách nejvíce využívány. Pro výzkum byla použita metodu pozorování a hloubkové rozhovory s vyučujícími, u kterých probíhal náslech. Výsledky praktické části ukázaly, že oba typy základních škol využívají jiné formy hodnocení. V běžné základní škole se jedná nejvíce o známky, které jsou i na vysvědčení. V Montessori základní škole se využívá slovní hodnocení a zpětná vazba žákova výkonu. Na konci roku pak žáci dostávají tzv. dopisy, které shrnují jejich výsledky na uplynutý rok. / This diploma thesis deals with a school assessment. It is divided into two parts, the theoretical and the practical one. In the theoretical part, first of all, the Montessori pedagogy and its principles like a freedom of children, beforehand prepaired surroundings or principals of the age heterogeneity are clarified. Further on the didactical material, used in those types of schools, is discussed. The last part of this chapter deals with the position of teachers and adults at school. Next there is a chapter about the assessment. It circumscribes the definition, functions and types of the assessment used in schools. Last, but not least, the forms of the assessment, which means classification by marking or a word evaluation. The second part is the practical one. It is aimed at finding the difference between the way of assessment in two types of primary schools, which means the Montessori primary school and an ordinary primary school and also at finding out, which types of assessment, concerned by the theoretical part, are used the most during lessons. For the research the method of observation and in-depth conversations with the teachers, at whose lessons the sitting in on a classes took place, were used. The outcome of this work was that both types of primary schools use different types of assessment. At the ordinary school it is mostly about the grades, which also occur at the school report. At the Montessori school, the verbal assessment and a feedback to student’s performance is used; at the end of the year the students receive the so called letters, which summarize their results from the last year.

Abstract/Notes: In this study, based on the theory of multiple intelligences in early childhood education teaching and learning strategies in the process of being made, and portfolio assessment to be introduced for the purpose of real-placed. To this end, pre-schoolers in Nuri class at Sarang Day Care Center were chosen for applying multiple intelligences theory to the project approach, were studied in a qualitative single case study. The research data was collected by analyzing the project-based education curriculum of Nuri class and interpreting the implementation of an early childhood program that applies multiple intelligences theory. The Nuri class program focused on practical knowledge emphasized in multiple intelligences theory on productive themes: Beans, Experience What it's like to be a Designer, Money, Save the Earth and Occupations. The preschoolers engaged in meaningful learning and creative experiences. Through a project that adopted a strategy based on multiple intelligences theory, they were able to develop multiple intelligences while having their differences and distinctions recognized. More than anything, the portfolio assessment process from a multi-dimensional perspective, which incorporates the children and parents, helped to build multiple intelligences to expand the children's reasoning and learning. / 본 연구는 다중지능이론에 기초한 유아교육과정에서 이루어지고 있는 교수학습 전략과 포트폴리오 평가에 대한 실제를 소개하고자 하는데 목적을 두고 있다. 이를 위해 프로젝트 접근법에 다중지능이론을 적용하는 사랑어린이집을 선정하여 질적 단일 사례연구의 구조 하에서 체계적인자료 수집과 분석을 하였다. 이에 대한 결과는 누리반의 유아교육프로그램은 지능의 실제성을 두는 다중지능이론에서 강조되는 ‘실천적 지식’에 초점을 맞추어 일상생활에서 밀접하고 생산적인 ‘콩, 디자이너 되어보기, 돈, 지구를 살려라, 직업’ 주제를 선정하였고 유아들은 실생활에 적용되는 의미 있는 학습과 창의적 경험을 하였다. 다중지능이론에 기초한 도입전략을 활용한 프로젝트 활동으로 유아들은 다름과 차이를 인정받으면서 다중지능을 발달시켜 나갔다. 무엇보다도 유아, 부모를 포함하는 다차원적 관점에서의 과정폴리오 평가 과정을 통해 다중지능을 강화하여 유아의 사고와 학습의 확장을 살필 수 있었다.
