Assessment is frequently thought of as a measure of what students have learned. However, what if you could assess your students to measure what they COULD learn? In this webinar, join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she introduces a variety of formative assessment methods that can be used in early childhood classrooms, including PreK and Kindergarten. After comparing and contrasting formative and summative assessment outcomes, Leigh Anne will provide an overview of strategies for formative assessment, such as observation, running records, pre-assessment, and reflection. In addition, she will share a list of skills that can be assessed using each of these techniques. While the strategies and examples given focus primarily on PreK and Kindergarten, many would be applicable to other early grade levels as well.

It's so important that assessments at this early age do not induce testing anxiety and stress. We have to teach our children to not worry about upcoming tests.
I really enjoyed this webinar.

Observation and pre assessment are essentail
Great refresher!! I need to do better with running records during centers instead of just pulling the children up to my table.
Very Helpful! Some of these things I already do but I love the reminder. Need to get back to running records if I can. Just difficult when you don't have an aide in a K classroom and have a full busy classroom. Thank you!
