Observation: The Heart of Authentic Assessment

Observation: The Heart of Authentic Assessment provides basic information about the uses of ongoing observation as part of an authentic assessment and child-centered planning system. These materials are designed for planning a professional development opportunity for paraprofessional and entry level early childhood providers who have not yet taken a formal course in observation or assessment. It can be presented successfully as a refresher for more experienced educators. Although this was originally designed for providers in Colorado, it can be used in other states with little or no adaptations. The links below will take you to all of the materials needed to lead a session, including a comprehensive trainer’s guide, handouts, PowerPoint slides, video clips, and an evaluation form.
