Assessment Tools for Early Childhood Education


Identifying early literacy assessment tools that are appropriate for the learning environment and beneficial for informing future instruction are important to the early learning classroom. The data obtained from assessments is critical in making decisions about accommodations in order to meet the diverse needs of students.

In a 250-500 word reflection, discuss the role formative assessments have in informing instruction. In addition, discuss appropriate assessment accommodations for learners with disabilities and language barriers. What is your ethical responsibility in maintaining the integrity of assessment data? Discuss how you will use this information in your future professional practice.

Use 2-3 scholarly resources to inform this reflection.
