On-the-job training, over-the-shoulder coaching, and assessment by watching a skill be performed are discussed.
- [Instructor] One format of assessment that's used often in business, but not as often in education, is the observational assessment. An example of this format is when an employee is trained by an expert, and before he or she can perform the job solo, often referred to as on the job training. After initial training, an expert in the job role observes the employee performing duties of the job and provides feedback, assistance, or a written evaluation. In education, observational assessment is an excellent choice for informally determining the progress of students and providing feedback and guidance.
An example of an observational assessment in education would be to give a math problem, then walk around and observe students as they are solving the problem.
