Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Assessment of the early childhood practicum has been identified as problematic. Tertiary supervisors play a role in this assessment process and yet little is known about how they understand the assessment methods used and how they implement them. This paper presents some early findings from a research project that aims to explore tertiary supervisors' understanding and practice of assessment of the early childhood practicum. Some themes and concepts identified as a result of a stage one analysis of four focus group interviews are outlined, and the potential of using a poststructuralist conceptual framework for interpreting the data explored
