Assessments and Portfolios in the Preschool Classroom
why should i assess my preschoolers?
Assessment drives instruction. When we know what skills children are needing more exposure to, we can create experiences, activities and opportunities for them to learn these skills in a play-based way.
what should i be assessing?
The early learning standards/goals in your state or the expectations your center or school district have set are what you should be assessing on. I have simplified my state's goals in an easier to handle format in my own set of Early Learning Goals.
