About this Course

Examine the goals of assessment
The purpose of assessment is to monitor children’s development and learning, guide planning and decision-making, report progress and communicate with others. Assessment gives us a basis to monitor children’s development and learning over time.

Assessment provides a road map
Formative assessment results give us direction for lesson planning and decision-making for student task analysis and student instructional groupings. Benchmarks and summative assessments are critical for reporting progress and providing a basis for updating IEPs as well as communicating progress with stakeholders.
