Chemistry Classroom Assessment at Chulalongkorn University Secondary Demonstration School in Thailand

A student-centered approach has been enforced in Thailand as a result of Educational reform. The Science Education Department at Chulalongkorn University Secondary Demonstration School (CUD) has revisited their teaching and students’, assessment processes. The results reflected a need for a classroom assessment to improve students’, learning abilities and teachers’, teaching strategies.Classroom action research was designed for the chemistry class. The teacher conducted his research in two classrooms with the total of 58 students. Data on students’, attitude towards science, and students’, preparation behavior before attending the class were collected through a questionnaire. A performance rating of students’, assignment by the teacher and midterm exam lessons evaluated by each student were collected. An interactive feedback session with individualstudents was organized based on the classroom assessment result. Results revealed that the classroom assessment techniques did help 60 to 70 percent of the total students who have a negative attitude towards science and performed poorly at midterm to achieve a better grade at the end of the ,semester.
