Summary Of Classroom Observation And Assessment

  1. 1. Observation & Assessment Recording a Child’s Use of Materials Dorothy H. Cohen And Virginia Stern
  2. 2. Why and how should teachers record what young children do?

How they interrelate with people and materials. Presented by Brent Daigle, Ph.D. (ABD)

  7. 7. On-the-Spot Records Lead to Supported Generalizations The review of a child’s use of materials over a period of time will be a mirror of his/her growth in this area. Responses are evaluated best when seen against the backdrop of a child’s general coordination, maturity, experience, and age, as well as against the usual behavior of children in their peer group. Presented by Brent Daigle, Ph.D. (ABD)
  8. 8. A word of caution!  It is impossible to get everything into every record.  Keep your eyes on the child, not on the printed page  It is not how much you record, but what and how, that makes a record valuable.
