Question Description

Checklists Observation Description:

Checklists are lists of specific traits or behaviors arranged in logical order

Check lists are especially useful for types of behavior or traits than can be easily and clearly specified.

Information from anecdotal and running records can be transferred to checklists to make interpretation easier.

Advantages

1. They are easy and quick to use;

2. Little training required;

3. They can be used in the presence of the child or recorded later;

4. Helps to focus observations on many behaviors at once;

5. Can be used for curriculum planning; activities can be planned to encourage certain behaviors that have not yet been observed;

6. Can be used to condense information from running record or anecdotal records.

Disadvantages

1. Not very detailed;

2. Little information about the context or sequence of events;

3. May miss important information not included on the checklist.

4. Notes if a behavior occurred but not how often it occurs or the duration of the behavior. Something that happens once may not be very meaningful.

Assignment:

Consult with the lead teacher in your classroom to choose a child to observe using the following checklist. Observe the child during your CD 106 lab time and complete the following checklist. Be sure to provide comments about what you observed in each of the checklist’s developmental areas.

The teacher asked the children to build a tower. The stones given were a bit heavy for a
four-year-old to lift. They were to put each stone after the other until they got a tall tower.

stones

Lord appears very neat. He has a clean and well-ironed school uniform. During the hot
