Sample text

In the lecture hall, Professor B is about to embark on a new topic. " He follows this by a series of probing questions to gain some insight about the depth of the knowledge that they exhibit. This exercise need not take much time, and it provides valuable information to help him implement the planned learning experiences in a productive way. He may now proceed with his lecture as originally planned; he may choose to spend less time discussing one topic that the students seem familiar with in favor of another topic with which they are less familiar; or he may decide that the class requires some help with prerequisite knowledge before he delivers his prepared lecture.

If we are to help the learner to learn, we must assess, on a continuing basis, where the students are in their journey. Thus, our task in the next chapter is to examine the input state. Chapter 5 Assessing the Input State: The Teacher as Diagnostician CHAPTER OVERVIEW We need to know what our students know and what they can do in order to best determine how to help the learner to learn. That is to say, we must be diagnosticians in the classroom. The most direct way to find out what students know is to ask them.

To carry out our job, we must find out what kind of help the learner needs to achieve the output state goals that we have defined. In Chapter 3, we defined the input state as the knowledge and skills that the student brings to the educational component and the facility with which the student can use that knowledge and those skills. What do we really need to know about our students' input state and how do we get this information? WHO ARE YOUR STUDENTS? Students in the typical American classroom are an increasingly diverse group.
