Observation Report & Observation Data
(High-Level Professional-Scholarly Writing)
This assignment is designed to provide practice in conducting behavioral observations and writing observation reports.
This method of assessment is most commonly used with children, so observing a child in a classroom setting or other setting (i.e., after-school program, extra-curricular activity, etc.) is highly desired. BUT now we do not have access to a child for the purpose of this assignment, so a youtube video will suffice. Here are a few I have found but you can find a different one if you would like. Use only one to document and write the report.
The observation report is to be a maximum of three pages (not including title page and references) in length and should be written as if you were using this research for future conclusions on classroom interventions.
-The document of observation data should be provided separately and doesnâ€™t have a length specification but should be thorough.
APA Standard, reference list, can use outside journal articles.
Include APA-formatted in-text citations.
Content – This portion of the report offers a detailed, coherent description, demonstrating the ability to observe carefully, keep thorough records, and translate those into an engaging narrative.
Insight and Critical Thinking – This portion of the report offers a consistently thoughtful, even insightful discussion of the ways in which the observation relates to the content of the course and the observerâ€™s pre-existing knowledge and assumptions.
Organization – The report is so well organized that the audience is scarcely aware of its organizational and/or structural elements. They seem to be simply another logical part of an organic whole.
Quality of Writing and Proofreading – The report is virtually free of mechanical or grammatical errors, demonstrating a careful attention to editing and proofreading, upholding – even contributing toâ€”the authorâ€™s thinking on their observation.
