LET'S EXPLORE POTENTIAL.
As professionals and individuals, we are constantly growing and changing. We study what we have done so that we can make changes for improvement. The same is true for our classroom and the children in our care. Here, it takes driven educators who truly want to make a difference. It takes visionary leaders, dedicated to the long view. It takes research-validated assessment tools designed to measure and support child growth and effective classroom and program practices.
WE ENGAGE. WE PLAY. WE ENCOURAGE. WE ASSESS.
HighScope has two comprehensive assessment tools:
• Child Observation Record (COR) Advantage measures the developmental levels of children, from infancy through kindergarten , and assesses their learning in eight content areas.
• Child Observation Record (COR) for Kindergarten measures kindergarten readiness at entry and achievement of national standards throughout the kindergarten year in five content areas.
• Program Quality Assessment (PQA) evaluates whether teachers and agencies implement effective program practices. Because both instruments reflect best practices in the classroom and basic child development principles and research, they are suitable for use in all developmentally based programs, not just those using the HighScope Curriculum.
