CLI strongly recommends the use of assessment data to help early childhood teachers understand student skill levels and individualize instruction to support areas in which students are at-risk for falling significantly behind. For infants and toddlers, tracking developmental milestones makes it far more likely that teachers and caregivers will catch cognitive and physical delays that can be remediated with early intervention. Formative assessment is also beneficial for teacher professional development by tracking the use of quality teaching behaviors and setting goals for improvement based on results.
Our child and teacher tools progress monitoring tools are designed for data-driven decision making with the overall goal to support both student and teacher growth, informing priorities for instruction/caregiving and professional development.
