iNACOL Standards for EDUU 625:
Standard E My self-score= 2
The online teacher models, guides, and encourages legal, ethical, and safe behavior related to technology use. I am feverishly committed to quelling plagiarism but I also am careful to maintain student safety since so much of what we do in Drama is collaborative.
Standard F My self-score= 2
The online teacher is cognizant of the diversity of student academic needs and incorporates accommodations into the online environment. I’m no perfect teacher, but I have always worked hard to honor and incorporate each student’s diversity and I have been pretty good about accommodating online activities for those students who need it.
Standard G My self-score= 2
The online teacher demonstrates competencies in creating and implementing assessments in online learning environments in ways that ensure validity and reliability of the instruments and procedures. I used to be not so good in this area, but of late, I’ve been embracing 21st century tools such as flipping my classroom and making explanatory videos. I’ve also improved the way I make rubrics – I blatantly “borrowed” the rubric format that has been used for us in these classes.
Standard H My self-score= 2
The online teacher develops and delivers assessments, projects, and assignments that meet standards-based learning goals and assesses learning progress by measuring student achievement of the learning goals. I have always been very standards aligned – I was trained to do that! I also employ a variety of formal and informal, formative and summative assessments per assignment. Students receive the benefit of my feedback, but also their peer’s feedback.
Standard I My self-score= 2
The online teacher demonstrates competency in using data from assessments and other data sources to modify content and to guide student learning. I have many times thrown assignments out because the majority of students didn’t do well. When that happens it’s not their fault, it’s mine and I’m very open about mistakes both mine and those committed by my students
