Abstract

Assessment is a common task in education and has many varied purposes. One of these is the use of assessment data to make decisions about teaching and support to struggling learners. Teacher preparation programmes should provide candidates with a rigorous, research-based curriculum and opportunities to practice a range of predefined skills and knowledge, including a focus on linking reading literacy assessment and teaching. According to the International Reading Association (2003) position statement, , teacher education programmes should ensure that teachers, amongst other crucial aspects, "know how to assess the progress of every learner and change teaching when it is not working; know how to communicate results of assessments to various stakeholders, especially parents". The purpose of this paper is to determine to what extent the content of a BEd Foundation Phase teacher preparation programme focuses on the assessment of the essential components of early reading instruction, and to what extent the content focuses on linking the aforementioned assessment with instructional decision-making.

Tlhatlhobo ke tiro ya ka gale ka mo thutong mme e na le mesola e mentsi e e farologanang. Tiro e nngwe ke go dirisa tshedimosetso ya tlhatlhobo go ka tsaya dikgato ka ga go ruta le go ema nokeng barutwana ba ba imelwang. Diporokerama tsa go ruta barutabana di tshwanetse go ba naya kharikhulamo e e maatla e e tshegediwang ke patlisiso le tshono ya go ka dirisa mefutafuta ya bokgoni le kitso e e tlhalositsweng mme go akareditswe le tsepamo mo kamanong magareng a tlhatlhobo ya puisokwalo ya go bala le go ruta. Go ya ka polelo ya maemo ya Tsalano ya Puiso ya Boditšhabatšhaba (2003) ya Tsadiso mo Katisong ya Barutabana ka mo US, diporokerama tsa katiso ya barutabana di tshwanetse go netefatsa gore barutabana, magareng a mabaka a a botlhokwa, ba tshwanetse go "Itse go tlhatlhoba tswelelopele ya morutwana yo mongwe le yo mongwe le go fetola mokgwa wa go ruta fa o sa siama mme itse go tlhaeletsana diphetho tsa tlhatlhobo mo batsayakarolong ba ba farologaneng le mo batsading".


Maikemisetso a pampiri e ke go tlhomamisa gore ke ka mokgwa ofe diteng tsa porokeramo ya katiso ya morutabana wa BEd wa Kgato ya Motheo di lebelelang thata tlhatlhobo ya dikarolo tse di botlhokwa tsa go ruta go buisa mo tshimologong le gore ke ka mokgwa ofe diteng di kopantshwang le tlhatlhobo ê mme di amana jang le dikgato tsa go tsewa mo go ruteng.
