Administrators and staff need to know not only how children are progressing but also what challenges they are encountering. Teachers working on this standard will benefit from integrating assessment into their day, rather than making assessment a large task to be attempted all at once. Assessments should occur within the context of reciprocal communications with families and with sensitivity to the cultural contexts in which children develop. This resource, focusing on NAEYC's Assessment Program Standard, will guide you toward understanding how to organize and systematize your assessments.


This is one of nine booklets addressing the Standards and Criteria specific to NAEYC Accreditation of early childhood education programs. Be advised that if your program enrolls in NAEYC Self-Study (the first step toward Accreditation) it will receive a copy of this booklet, among other resources, as part of the cost of enrollment.
