ED 712 - Developmentally Appropriate Early Childhood Assessment Practices
Course Description: This course focuses on the role of assessment as an ongoing, collaborative process of gathering and interpreting objective information about young children's (birth to 8 years) behaviors and the social and physical environment to make decisions regarding appropriate services and supports. Assessment terminology and legal and ethical principles of assessment will be explored. An emphasis will be placed on developmentally appropriate assessment practices- including partnering with families- applying interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teaming approaches throughout the assessment process, identifying appropriate assessment methods and tools for the decisions being made, and linking assessment to programming. A variety of formal and authentic assessment methods and tools will be explored and critiqued to determine their strengths and limitations in making decisions for children who are culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse. 10 hours of fieldwork is required.
