Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology exercise and need a sample draft to help me learn.PurposeThis assignment will demonstrate your ability to use an ECERs tool. Since it is not yet consistently feasible to visit centers in person, this assignment will be based on videos of an environment at another community college (Reedley). They have generously made them available for our use. Additionally, they have provided supplemental narrative information about the center (included below) which will enable you to complete your rating.Video explanation of how to complete the assignment (Links to an external site.)* *You can ignore the one statement where it says you must attend a “session”, this was made for another section that had a required meeting covering what you already learned about in the video lectures.DirectionsWhile viewing the classroom videos linked below, use the ECERS-3 rating sheets for items 1, 2, 4, 5, 16, and 18 to rate the classroom depicted in the videos and score each item using the ECERS 3 Scoring Sheet which you will find just below the rating sheets. Remember, you must use BOTH documents at the same time. The videos provided will give you the information needed to score sheet the items. Make sure you read the notes of clarification which will provide additional information that may not be apparent in the videos.
You will need to watch these videos multiple times (as many times as you need to get complete information). You will gain information for numerous measures in each video, in other words, each video does NOT correspond to a specific Item. You will NOT be able to fill out the ECERS entirely if you try to watch only the videos you think correspond to the Item #s on the scoring sheet.
You can use any means you are comfortable with to fill out the ECERS. You can print, write your score in and then upload the pictures, or use some of the formatting options available in Microsoft word. If you are struggling with filling the document in, please contact me ASAP.
Some parts will ask about interactions observed. Since this is not a live observation, you have my permission to make this part up. I’m most interested in your understanding of the scoring system.
Do your very best to combine all of your sheets into ONE document prior to submitting.
** There are not many 7’s on the score sheet; please make sure you read and apply what you have learned. Completing an ECERS WILL be something you will do as a classroom teacher.******Classroom VideosClassroom Overview Pt. #1Classroom Overview Pt. #2Classroom Overview Pt. #3Group AreaOutdoor EnvironmentBathroomArt CenterDramatic PlayScience CenterReading CenterWriting CenterLight TableClassroom DocumentationECERS-3 Rating Sheets to be Used-Attached pdf’sYou can fill this in any way you would like.
