In the development of the learning process, it is crucial not only to assess educational goals but also to implement measures for the relevant assessment of students’ progress. To overcome difficulties, it is necessary, first, to choose appropriate activities which will develop certain skills and knowledge. To assess the lesson’s effectiveness, it is essential to evaluate each educational activity’s importance correctly. Thus, the developing and evaluating planning process provides valuable exercises for an adult educator.
The developing process involves forming a plan of learning activities, which are ready for implementation. To successfully plan the stage, it is necessary to select certain activities for the goals and outcomes which are being set (Tatum, 2020). There are many different types of tasks aimed at developing various skills and knowledge. The main challenge at this stage is precisely the determination of the most effective teaching means to achieve the set educational objectives. For the development of activities, it is necessary to engage students in relevant experience and practice, as well as receive feedback from them (“Lesson planning”, n. d.). The major problem is to choose the most suitable tasks, which, at the same time, will be interesting and useful to students. To overcome this, I formulated educational objectives and assessed the needs of the students, excluding activities that might be inappropriate for them.
To assess effectiveness, it is also important to provide a means for measuring student performance and achievement of learning objectives during the development stage. The major problem in evaluation is the challenge of introducing useful and accurate assessment criteria (Tatum, 2020). For the successful completion of the stage, I accurately determined each activity’s skill and assessed its importance throughout the whole education process. Based on this, I have developed grading systems, including both student performance assessment and feedback.
Overcoming challenges in developing and evaluating planning has been an extremely valuable exercise. It allows an educator to learn how to consider a variety of crucial factors. To create a successful and useful lesson, it is necessary to evaluate not only educational goals but also the progress of students (“Lesson planning,” n. d.). It is also essential to adjust the level and types of assignments according to the student’s performance. Thus, careful planning is built on a thorough examination of educational needs and skills.
