Traineeship, writing reports.
Examination and assessment
Mode(s) of assessment

The report is well-structured and written with a text processor.
The report allows an informed external party to gain insight into the student's learning process and activities during the traineeship.
The report discusses the process of didactic learning critically and shows the student's personal development.
The student has prepared his lessons in an adequate and timely fashion and has demonstrated his sense of responsibility.
The student has displayed a constructive attitude during the coaching sessions, has taken advice to heart and has shown himself open to criticism.
The student has demonstrated a capacity for self-criticism.
The student has demonstrated insight and creativity in finding ways to improve his own didactic abilities.
The lessons observed show adequate progress.
The student has completed this module if he is awarded a minimum grade of 5.5, with a minimum class attendance of 80%.
The assessment committee is comprised of the traineeship supervisor. The traineeship supervisor collects the assessments and determines the final result.
Upon completion of his traineeship, the student hands in his report to the traineeship supervisor. Assessment:
A: The report is assessed by the traineeship supervisor.
B: The course of the traineeship is assessed by the traineeship supervisor.
The final result is the average of (A+B), rounded off to the nearest half-point. The traineeship coordinator determines and announces the final result and informs the student of any resit options.
In case of a failing grade, the following situations may apply:
the report is unsatisfactory (assessments A): the student is requested to rewrite the report and hand it in for assessment again;
and/or the traineeship is unsatisfactory (assessments B): the student will receive a new, possibly shorter traineeship assignment.
Students develop a practical approach to developing their didactic abilities while teaching. To this end, they will observe a host teacher, who will also let them teach lessons (partly) by themselves.
An important part of the traineeship assignment is completing a number of written assignments focusing on observing lessons and actively participating in them.
