Alternative Approaches to Assessing Young Children
Paul H. Brookes Publishing Company, 2001 - Education - 246 pages
Are you looking for ways to meet the needs of young children who are culturally, linguistically, or developmentally diverse? Do you find traditional assessment methods too confining to accurately assess the needs of all your students? Discover which form of assessment is right for you in this book. You'll take an in-depth look at six alternative assessment methods such as naturalistic, focused, performance, portfolio, dynamic, and curriculum-based language. In each chapter, you'll explore one of these methods and find a detailed description of the approach, a summary of advantages and limitations, specific guidelines for implementation, suggestions for working in inclusive environments, and samples of data collection forms. With this book's innovative strategies, you'll be able to build on your existing traditional assessment skills and provide more comprehensive assessments for young children and their families.
