For Assessment courses in Early Childhood Education.

One of the most accessible and practical textbooks available on assessing young children from infancy through age 8, it provides the full range of types of assessment and how, when, and why to use them.

An excellent introduction to assessing young children, Assessment in Early Childhood Education, Sixth Edition, continues with the inclusion of all types of assessments that can be used with infants and young children. Key changes and updates to this edition include: updated and streamlined figures, examples, and models of assessment that aid pre-service teachers to learn how to apply the principles of quality assessments; new activities at the end of the chapters provide opportunities for students to apply their own performance activities to demonstrate understanding of chapter contents; the effects of No Child Left Behind have been updated; newly revised information on children from diverse cultures and languages and children with disabilities has been added; and information on new and current trends toward accountability are discussed, as well as the impact of high-stakes testing.
