EDPD 8072 - Assessment and Evaluation to Facilitate Healthy Development and Learning For All Children, Birth Through 8


(5 cr.) To lead assessment and evaluation practices effectively for all children, birth through age 8, education professionals must be able to analyze and implement current research and practices to evaluate the effectiveness of early intervention assessment and evaluation models. Education professionals explore various types of assessment practices (i.e., formative, summative, formal, and informal assessment) as well as evaluate how they use data from these assessments to promote development, guide teaching, and monitor progress. Through an in-depth analysis of Part C regulations (birth to 3 years) and Part B requirements (3–21 years), a particular focus will be placed on assessing and evaluating children who come from cultural and linguistic diverse backgrounds as well as other external factors that need to be considered when working with children. As leaders in the field, education professionals reflect upon research and practice to foster collaborative partnerships with families and other professionals to positively influence the development of every child.
