ATLANTA, GA, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online childcare training provider dedicated exclusively to the early childhood care and education workforce, is pleased to introduce CUR136: Assessment Methods in Early Childhood Education to the online training catalog for childcare.

Observation is a systematic, planned study of children’s behavior in different environments and situations. It is an ongoing, ongoing process that begins when entering the classroom and only ends when moving to a different classroom or school. Observation is the basis of effective assessment systems in the early childhood setting. Teachers can learn almost everything they need to know about a child’s needs and abilities by watching them play and interact with other children. Also, a teacher can create an assessment based on a child’s responses to the teacher’s prompts. Well-planned, careful observation can provide tremendous insight into a child’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.

Teachers must use a variety of assessment methods to determine what children know and to determine each child’s unique needs. The assessment should drive important decisions related to the curriculum and classroom environment. In addition, the assessment can help identify children who may have developmental delays. Along with maintaining a safe, nurturing environment and providing developmentally appropriate learning opportunities, assessing children’s abilities and needs is one of the most important responsibilities of early childhood education professionals. Assessment is an ongoing process that requires a multi-pronged approach, flexibility and great attention to detail. It should link directly to the daycare’s curriculum goals and will be used to determine if the children are achieving those goals or if the curriculum should be modified.

In this course, participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of child assessment methods commonly used in early learning settings. Topics such as proper observation practices, putting together portfolios, and completing development checklists are covered. Participants also have the opportunity to learn about other forms of assessment, such as B. Children’s self-assessments, frequency counts and learning stories.

“It takes time and practice to develop strong observation skills, so new teachers should work alongside experienced teachers whenever possible,” says Maria C. Taylor, President of the CCEI. “Dividing the grading responsibilities ensures that everyone works together as a team to maintain a comprehensive, manageable grading system.”

CUR136: Assessment Methods in Early Childhood Education is a three-hour intermediate course and grants 0.3 IACET CEU on successful completion. Current CCEI users with active unlimited annual subscriptions can enroll in professional development courses at no additional cost when logged into their CCEI account.
