Get Started

Welcome to Authentic Assessment for Early Childhood: Planning Learning Experiences!

This training will help you gain skills in understanding the importance of authentic assessment and how you can use the information you gather in a variety of ways.  This training does not focus on a specific assessment tool but gives you a solid background in assessment so that you can use the tools you already have or choose a tool in the future. 

When you return to the workplace you will be able to explore the assessment tool that is used in your workplace, practice strategies learned to gather more information about children, and apply assessment in lesson planning.

Satisfactory completion of an application activity will be required before receiving completion credit.

This course is a follow-up to ECE 203 Authentic Assessment for Early Childhood: An Introduction. You must complete that course before beginning this one.
