This course is designed to demonstrate to the student how to do authentic, alternative, classroom-based assessment on young children. It will further provide the student with the knowledge and skills to interpret and use the information gained to plan curriculum that is responsive to and supportive of children's learning and development. Students will have the opportunity to engage in assessment processes through means of classroom observations, providing each student with a stronger understanding of child development skills. Students will take responsibility for using a variety of age, developmentally, linguistically, and culturally appropriate formal and informal assessments to gather and share information on each child's skills, abilities, interests, and needs, birth through age eight.
This course requires the use of Brightspace Desire2Learn.
Semester begins 1/16/2024 and ends 5/16/2024.
