Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to develop the tool which evaluate the performance about the class life, sensorial ability, language, mathematics, social ability and art. Cronbach's α and reexamination number was used for credibility of the developed tool. Cranbach's α was over mean 0.90 and figures among the totol score. / 본 연구는 몬테소리 유아교육과정을 실시하는 기관에서 일상생활 연습, 감각, 언어, 수학, 사회, 과학, 미술의 7개 영역에 대한 유아의 수행능력을 구체적이고 객관적으로 평가할 수 있는 도구를 개발하고자 하는 목적으로 이루어졌다. 개발된 평가도구의 신뢰도를 알아보기 위하여 Cronbach's α과 재검사 계수를 산출하였다.

Abstract/Notes: This study develops a Montessori Performance Assessment Scale (MPAS), a scale for assessing the performance of 3-5 year old kindergarteners in Montessori programs. Subjects were 50 3-5 year old children attending a Montessori kindergarten in Seoul and 167 kindergarten teachers in Montessori programs in Seoul. Statistical methods employed were frequency, Cronbach's Alpha, test/re-test reliability, construct validity and concurrent validity. Results of this study are: 1) There are few reliable scales to assess the performance of the educational objectives of Montessori programs: 2) Cronbach's Alpha of the MPAS's of 8 areas (practical life, sense, language, mathematics, social studies, science, music and art education) ranged from .90 to .92. The correlation of the test/re-test was .92. The correlation among the MPAS's 8 areas and between the 8 areas and the total scores of the areas ranged from .67 to .89. It was also shown that MPAS highly correlated with the Standardized Korean Creativity Traits Checklist (K-CTC) (r=.51) and the Korean Child Social Maturity Scales (r=.60). These results indicate that MPAS developed by the authors is a valid scale with high reliability. / 본 연구는 몬테소리 유아교육과정을 실시하는 기관에서 일상생활 연습, 감각, 언어, 수학, 사회, 과학, 음악, 미술교육의 8개 영역에 대한 유아의 수행능력을 구체적이고 객관적으로 평가할 수 있는 도구를 개발하고자 하는 목적으로 이루어졌다. 167명의 몬테소리 유아교육기관 교사를 대상으로 평가방법에 대한 현황을 파악하고 3차례에 걸쳐 만 3~5세 남녀 유아에게 검사를 실시한 후 전문가 협의를 거쳐 몬테소리 수행평가 도구의 항목과 점수체계를 구성하였다. 몬테소리 수행평가 도구 개발 과정에서는 서울지역에 있는 대학 부속유치원에 다니는 유아 50명을 대상으로 적용하여 그 가능성을 검증하였다. 개발된 평가도구의 신뢰도를 알아보기 위해서는 Cronbach’s α값과 재검사 계수(test/re-test correlation)를 산출하였다. Cronbach’s α값은 .90에서 .92의 범위로 매우 높은 문항내적 합치도를 보여주었으며 재검사 계수 또한 .92로 높은 신뢰도를 보여주었다. 본 연구자들이 개발한 수행평가의 8개 구인과 총점간 상관계수는 .67~.89로 나타났다. 개발된 몬테소리 수행평가 도구는 유아용 창의적 특성 검사(r=.51) 및 사회성숙도 검사(r=.60)와도 높은 상관이 있는 것으로 나타났다.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to test the reliability and validity of the Infant Montessori Performance Assessment Scales developed by the authors. Subjects of the study consisted of 132 Montessori teachers and 50 infants who were attending Montessori home school throughout the whole country, using census method. Infant's age ranged from 6 to 24 months. Data were analysed by using SAS 8.2 PC program. Statistical methods employed were frequency, Cronbach's alpha, Kappa coefficient, test-retest correlation, construct validity, and concurrent validity. The Cronbach's alpha of 6 sub-scales included physical, creativity, practical life, sense, language, and cognitive education, which ranged from .70 to .86. And the! correlation of the test/re-test was .72. The correlation between the 6 sub-scales of Infant-Montessori Performance Assessment Scales and the total scores of 6 items ranged from .06 to .84. Therefore, the construct validity of Infant Montessori Performance Assessment Scales was verified. The Kappa coefficient of inter-rater reliability was .76. The correlation between the Infant Montessori Performance Assessment Scales and the Standardized Korean Creativity Traits Checklist(K-CTC) and the Korean Child Social Maturity Scales showed non-significant levels of .16 and .12 respectively. Conclusively, Infant Montessori Performance Assessment Scales developed by the authors were verified through the above reliability and validity tests. Specifically the Infant Montessori Performance Assessment Scales showed the relationship of the convergent and divergent validity with the Korean Child Social Maturity Scales and the Standardized Korean Creativity Traits Checklist, respectively.

Abstract/Notes: Objectives The Montessori Assessment System (MAS) is an assessment tool that aims at assessing preserved abilities in persons with moderate to severe dementia and to serve as basis for person-centered interventions. As responsive behaviors are highly frequent in this population, we assessed their possible influence on the MAS administration and results.Methods 193 persons with a diagnosis of dementia in the moderate to severe stages living in nursing homes completed the MAS. Responsive behaviors were assessed by the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI).Results The NPI scores were heterogeneous, but responsive behaviors were present for at least 5 NPI domains in more than 50% of the participants. While NPI scores had weak relationships with MAS completion time and total score, primarily for the hallucinations, euphoria, and aberrant motor behaviors domains, a large majority of the participants fully completed the MAS.Conclusions The presence of responsive behaviors as assessed by the NPI does not limit MAS administration, despite minor influence on MAS score and completion time.Clinical implications The MAS may be applied to persons with moderate to severe dementia presenting responsive behaviors. Assessment of preserved abilities can greatly improve the design of person-centered care plans in this population.

Abstract/Notes: This seven-week study explored the impact of student-self assessment on learning and engagement behaviors of 48 sixth graders during math classes in a public school setting. Data collection tools such as student surveys, pre-and post -self-assessments, observations, reflections, and teacher- student conferencing provided the information to inform the conclusions regarding self-efficacy. Observation confirmed that a student’s participation in using self-evaluation to contribute to their learning affected internal processes such as motivation and engagement. Assessment activities that provided evidence and feedback to inform goals specific to skill development and learner traits yielded significant results. Highly structured assessment tools and classroom routines reduced students' reliance on the teacher to interpret and use individual performance data. The use of formative assessment practices that promoted goal setting, self-assessment and self-determination practices improved engagement and learning behaviors in the classroom.

The Application of Student Portfolios in Primary/Intermediate and Self-Contained/Multi-Age Team Classroom Environments: Implications for Instruction, Learning, and Assessment

Available from: ERIC

Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association

Abstract/Notes: Portfolios have gained wide acceptance as a learning and assessment tool. Yet, little research has been reported on the practices of teachers who are actually using portfolios within their classrooms and how those practices are moderated by contextual variables. This research examined the instructional, learning, and assessment roles of student portfolios, and explored, from the perspective of the classroom teacher, variations in portfolio applications associated with teaching level (primary versus intermediate) and classroom environment (self-contained versus multiage/teaming). Teachers for kindergarten through grade 5 in 3 elementary schools (n=314) completed a survey questionnaire regarding the instructional and assessment uses to which portfolios are put within their classrooms. To further examine patterns of portfolio use, a subset of 44 teachers was interviewed to explore teacher perceptions about the impact of student portfolios on themselves and their students. Results suggest that these teachers make deliberate decisions regarding uses of their students' portfolios, decisions that appear heavily impacted by the maturity or skill level of the child, the purposes of the application, and the classroom environment within which the application occurs. They also depend on whether the portfolio product is in a formative state (working portfolio) or final state (performance portfolio). (Contains 7 tables and 14 references.) (Author/SLD)
