An attempt is made to organize the content, but the
sequence is indiscernible. The ideas presented are
compartmentalized and may not relate to each other.
Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the
reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) and/or
word choice are present.
Description of implementation and adjustments is vague and

In the classroom settings, understanding the learners' needs allows the teacher to create
the right measures that may show the appreciation of the children's different needs. The most
effective method that helps teachers learn about the children's learning differences is the preassessments that allow teachers to gather the information that may allow them to develop the
right lessons plan with instructions favourable for all students. The pre-assessments allow
teachers to gain and learn the problems that may hinder the learners from attaining the overall
goal in school (Guskey, 2018). The reassessments' effectiveness allows the teachers to create
appropriate instructions that may benefit all students. Since ego issues among the learners may
affect their relationship with other colleagues, focusing on pre-assessment plays a critical role in
setting aside the powerful ego between learners and their teachers. For the teachers, completing a
pre-assessment allows them to develop the right attitude that may enable them to address the
learning differences that the children are likely to show.
Before deciding the method to consider when providing specific teaching, considering the
learners' comfort levels is a critical factor that may allow teachers to provide essential lessons,
the teachers' effectiveness of pre-assessment is that it allows them to measure the student’s
comfort levels and relate it with the learning goal in the respective unit. This knowledge allows
the teacher to document the significant student learning problems and the possible practices
needed to create the needed change. The other way that the pre-assessments are necessary for
supporting, verifying, and documenting the learning approach followed by a student is to help
the teacher gain knowledge about the learner’s interests. Before beginning a lesson, a teacher
who completes the pre-assessments learns about the learners' significant learning profiles, thus
determining the acceptable practices to follow when addressing their needs. The students'
learning profile may also provide additional knowledge about the strengths and weaknesses of
the learners. For instance, through the learning profiles, the teacher can understand the areas of
interest for a learner and the possible problems the learner may encounter (Harper, 2018). Thus,
this information helps the teacher create a teaching method that may dwell on the learners'
weakness to help them overcome it. One example of a pre-assessment that a teacher can consider
when providing teachings to the learners is using a guess box. In this assignment, the teacher
may tell the learners to guess what is in the box concerning the topic they were addressing.
Through this, the teacher can decide about the preparedness of the learners. The pre-assessment
activity further allows the teacher to challenge the learners and see whether they can identify
some of the specific topic issues. The guess box activity further allows the teacher to develop a
stable relationship with the learners.
When teaching, fairness is one of the critical areas of concern to address to allow the
learner to enjoy the provided teachings. Through the pre-assessments, teachers can understand
the area that has not been effectively addressed to make it possible to solve it (Runnals & Hong,
2019). additionally, since the learners may show differences among themselves, this approach
plays a critical role in creating an environment where the teachers can evaluate the right topics to
address to overcome the barriers that may contribute to inequality among the learners. The
various forms of assessment questions give information about the learners' challenges when
solving most of the questions. Through this assessment, teachers can effectively determine the
practices needed to help the learners experiencing significant challenges when completing some
of the objectives in their learning environment. For teachers who rely on relatively complex
approaches when teaching, this assessment helps them to learn the problems experienced by the
learners when interpreting the provided teachings. Through this, teachers can determine the
features of teaching they need to consider and what to abolish.
