In the Week 4 Case Study: Assessment/Resources, Mrs. Ashland was asked to be part of a shared decision of assessment selection.

Mrs. Ford, the Director of the center, asks her to use her knowledge of developmentally appropriate teaching approaches to evaluate specific assessment tools and practices that may be used center-wide.  Mrs. Ford identifies the following tools for Mrs. Ashland to research and use in her classroom to help inform her decision:

 

    • Anecdotal Records
    • Checklists 
    • Rating scales
    • Rubrics 
    • Running Records

 

The textbook explores these assessments further and provides specific examples to use for administration. Using the information gained in the case study, as well as the information and examples presented in the chapter, administer two of assessments of your choice.  You may choose to administer to a child that you know and have permission to conduct an example assessment with, or you may use a child from one of the case studies in your text.

For this discussion, you will submit your reflections of the administration, addressing the following:   

 

  1. What do you think the strengths of using this assessment are?
  2. What did you find challenging when administering this assessment?  What is your action plan to improve this?
  3. After reviewing your findings, what did your results conclude?
  4. Based on your analysis of your assessment data, what are three recommendations that you have for the curriculum for the learner going forward?  How will you use the assessment data to make instructional decisions?
