SCHEME OF WORKS This is a guideline that defines the structure and content of an academic course. It is a plan for instructors to outline what they will teach during an academic term or period. A scheme of work spells out clearly how resources, class activities and assessment strategies will be used to ensure that the learning aims and objectives of the course are met successfully.

LESSON PLAN This is a detailed description of the course of instruction for a lesson. It is a teachers guide for running a particular lesson and it includes the goal (what the students are supposed to learn), how the goal will be reached (the method, procedure) and a way of measuring how well the goal was reached( tests, homework/ assignment etc.)

ASSESSMENT IN LITERATURE TEACHING Definition: Assessment refers to the process of documenting, usually in measurable terms, learners’ attainment in terms of knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs. Assessment is a process by which the quality of learning is judged or evaluated. It embraces all methods used to appraise the performance of a student, group of learners or a class.

Assessment involves the process of observing, learning, collecting, recording, scoring and interpreting information about students learning. It is an integral and core component of teaching and learning that must take into consideration what is taught, how it is taught and how students learn during the course of instruction.

REASONS FOR ASSESSMENT Determining the level of entry of the learners for admission purposes in some courses. Monitoring the learners progress and taking appropriate action to help them perform better. Diagnosing learners strengths and weaknesses through formative assessment and using the results to help them improve. Motivating and encouraging learners to work harder and improve or maintain their excellent performance depending on their grades.

Grading learners and giving them guidance and appropriate individual attention. Placement and promotion purposes. Learners who perform poorly can repeat classes. Planning purposes. Poor performance may be due to large classes or inadequate materials, poor staff welfare or the quality of students admitted and teachers hired.

Teacher motivation and self appraisal. When students don’t perform well, this is an indicator that possibly the teacher did not prepare and teach well. Programme monitoring and evaluation. Assessment provides feedback on whether the content, methods, materials, human resource and strategies are best.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
