Diagnostic Assessment reflection
Questions to consider in your reflection
How did you find your student? What were your initial thoughts about your student and the prospect of tutoring them? How did you develop a working relationship with your tutoring student? Did you find it easy to make a connection or did you struggle to find common ground? Were you surprised by anything in the process of getting to know your student?
How did you go about determining what materials to use? Did you practice reading the assessments?
How did it go? Did it take you multiple days? Did you have any setbacks?
These are all essential considerations, but they aren’t the only things that could shape your thoughts on the process of collecting your pre-tutoring assessment data. You should include anything you feel is important. Remember, this is going in your TK20-Watermark portfolio, so be sure you stay positive when at all possible. Also, be honest, but don’t be too hard on yourself when considering possible setbacks. It is your first time doing these assessments most likely.
Your reflection should be at least 350 words and be free of mechanical and grammatical errors. You should use APA in-text citations when needed, but do not need to have a reference list.
The attached document has an example from a former student. Please note this sample is not perfect but intended to give you an idea of what is expected. You must still submit your own original work. Also, some of the assessments given may differ since this was a previous semester with a different textbook.
