Learning Outcomes 2

ESL Beginning Adult Class

Unit – Numbers

First lesson numbers 1 -12

            1. The objective of my first lesson is to write (spell) numbers up to the number 12 with over 70% accuracy.

            The learning outcome is measured by passing a hand out with the numeric representation in one column and a column next to it with a blank line drawn. The class in instructed to write the number that they see on that line. The number 1 is given as an example with one written on the line. The others are left blank. An example of the way the exam is offered below. The numbers 6-12 would be created like wise.

Spell the correct number next to  the numerical number:

 EXAMPLE  1.   __one _________

2.   __________________________

3.   __________________________

4.   __________________________

5.   __________________________

            This test is fits into the memory category.

            2. The objective of the second lesson is to be able to say the numbers from 1-12 aloud 100%.

            The outcome would be measured by the teacher writing the numbers numerically and asking students to identify the numbers aloud. The teacher would call on a more proficient learner to give the first one as an example.

            This test also fits into the memory category and requires a psycho-motor skill.

            3. The objective of the third lesson is for students to know how to place the numbers 1-12 in the correct order 100% of the time.

            The outcome would be measured in this manner – the teacher writes numbers in a jumbled order on the blackboard (or white board) and instructs the students to place numbers in order. The example would be given with the number one placed first like the example below:

            10, 8, 1, 5, 4, 12, 2, 9, 11, 6, 7, 3, the teacher would show them by writing 1, 2… as an example of what to do.


            This test demonstrates comprehension and has them manipulating figures as they write.


            Subsequent outcome measures (such as numbers on a clock and telling time or cost when shopping with a given hypothetical number) can be constructed involving computations after lessons on this have been presented and practiced by the class.
