  • 16. Role of an educator Authentic assessment is defined by the active role the teacher plays in classroom-based assessment of actual literacy experiences. Taking observational notes allows the teacher to record a wide range of authentic experiences and even unintended outcomes of literacy development. These notes are used to record objective and subjective information as well as affective information, such as levels of engagement, curiosity, and motivational factors (Baker, Dreher, & Guthrie, 2000; Wigfield, 1997). " Teaching is an art". Rajeev Ranjan

Cautions during writing anecdotal record Interpreting anecdotes teacher’s personal values, biases and expectations can cause undesirable effect in assessment Teachers are expected to keep unbiased records of behaviours or traits manifested by learners Teachers are expected to observe child objectively and avoid favorable or unfavorable impression completely away during writing " Teaching is an art". Rajeev Ranjan
  • 20. Cautions during writing anecdotal record Observations should be accurate, objective and specific as well as authentic Observers should not make assumptions or use subjective or ambiguous words Student’s behaviour, whether it is favourable, unfavourable or neither of the two should be recorded (CBSE, CCE Manual) It is done only when appropriate and is not forced; in fact, there may be days between entries " Teaching is an art". Rajeev Ranjan
  • 21. Cautions during writing anecdotal record In fact, “Anecdotal Record “ is written after “the fact” so “the fact” should be written in “past tense” moreover, “the fact” should be written in “ descriptive language”. When we write “ the fact” it should be “ a beginning , a middle and an end”. Johnston & Rogers (2002) states that ‘Recording observational data “explicitly depends on the human expert”. " Teaching is an art". Rajeev Ranjan
