2019 Assessment Item Updates: What You Need to Know
NAEYC Accreditation continuously collects feedback from programs and assessors to understand how well assessment items perform. Based on this analysis, we update guidance and/or select assessment items annually.
The intent of the 2019 update is to implement changes to item language, guidance, and rating options that will clarify NAEYC’s expectations of best practice evidence, and improve the accuracy of assessors’ ratings.
The 2019 revisions will apply to programs that submit their Candidacy OR 4th year annual report ON or AFTER July 1, 2019. To ensure your program is using the correct self-assessment tools for your upcoming site visit, please select from one of the choices below:
