For a course on Assessment in kindergarten and the primary grades.

Based on the premise that curriculum, assessment, and teaching are inextricably intertwined, this text is designed to help prospective teachers of young children conduct informal and formal assessments and develop an assessment system that draws information from various assessment sources. By doing so, complimentary and comprehensive assessment information is rendered and informs educators, learners, parents, and accountability requirements. The text emphasizes an assessment mindset that comprehensive, reliable, and valid assessment data pave the way for meaningful, relevant, and engaging learning opportunities for children.
