PROGRAM PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT (10 Hours) LEVEL 3-4
What is an Instructional Strategy?
Post-Planning and Assessment
The assessment will tell you whether or not the students have understood and retained the information presented, or have reached a specific milestone. It is important not to teach to the assessment, but to assess the effectiveness and or retention of instruction and where a child lies on the continuum of development. For instance, we do not teach a child how to take one step or two steps when going up or down a set of stairs. We simply document what we see as objectively as possible.
Ask yourself the following questions: Yes/No
- Did you follow recommended Early Childhood Assessment Requirements?
- Was your assessment developmentally appropriate?
- Was your assessment culturally and linguistically considerate?
- Was your assessment associated with curriculum competencies and early learning standards?
- Did you take advantage of using a collaborative effort between parents and educators?
- Was your assessment relevant, containing multiple sources of information?
