With more and more focus on accountability and standards, a lot of effort has been placed on assessment at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, with very little attention given to what happens in early childhood. Just like a house needs a sound foundation in order to withstand the test of time, so assessment at early childhood needs your support. Carefully planned and executed assessment can lay the foundation for future intervention, critical to your child's survival. Drawing from over 40 years experience and having written at all levels of the education system; pre-primary, primary, secondary, higher education and adult education, the author provides you with strategic, comprehensive, multi-sourced, purpose-driven assessment instruments that are culturally, linguistically and individually appropriate and would provide ongoing information about your child across developmental domains. This is the most practical 'how-to', 'go-to', 'turn-back-the-clock' book for early childhood providers, caregivers, practitioners, specialists, administrators, parents, guardians and significant others.
