Child Assessment

We believe that authentic, observation-based assessment is the most effective approach to early childhood assessment because it paints an accurate picture of children’s development and learning. That’s why our child assessment tools are designed to help teachers capture and analyze each day’s play-based learning and translate those observations into targeted and individualized support and instruction that results in positive child outcomes.
