Summary

This revision is one of the most accessible, practical texts available on assessing young children from infancy through age 8. The book focuses on formal and informal assessment content, strategies, and examples; observation guidelines and strategies; how to use assessments for curriculum planning and for communicating with families; and the spectrum of current assessment issues. Key changes to this edition include more on infant and toddler observation, screening, and standardized testing; the impact of NCLB and Head Start National Reporting System on assessing children; more mini-case studies illustrating real assessment situations in programs and schools today; expanded information on working with children who are bilingual or limited English speakers, and expanded information on parent partnerships in Chapter 10. For primary school teachers involved in preparing for, administering, interpreting, and moving forward with the results of standardized testing.
