Conference Paper

Use of Checklists for CCE in Montessori Schools

National Conference on Assessment Practices in Schools

See More

Abstract/Notes: Among the various forms of assessment that Montessori teachers use in the schools at the pre-primary levels, checklists are very common. Yet it has been found that most teachers use these to write reports rather than to modify classroom practices or their perceptions. My study shows that they form an ideal tool for Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation, particularly in the lower grades, where children are not yet ready for tests and exams. It also tracks their impact on teacher learning and change in four schools in Karnataka. Questions for the study are How is a common checklist used for Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation in Montessori schools? What change does it bring about in classroom practices in the process of its implementation? The checklists in this study were developed in the process of teacher training in an NGO program and refined later in discussions and from teacher feedbacks. They were used in the present investigation and the impact studied over a period of 1 ½ to 2 ½ years. At the beginning of the program, teachers were trained in utilizing it to list the lessons given by them to the pupils. Over the years, they were helped to use the list to track learning outcomes. They were also shown how to use them to adapt their work to suit the needs of their pupils. Data for this study was collected as field notes, check lists filled by teachers, interviews with facilitators who acted as mentors as well as teachers, and reports and analysed inductively. The results show that checklists in a Montessori classroom supported by mentoring can be an effective way of continuously evaluating and improving the learning in students.
