practices. Examining other countries’ perspectives on assessment can help us both understand and determine best practices for our own students. We all have something to offer. It is never a good practice to think we know all there is to know about assessment.
As you examine the website/resources, be sure to review statistics with regard to the number of children served, and note how students with exceptionalities fit into the overall plan. Examine city versus rural areas. Note how statistics relate to population as a whole. Look for best practices you can share with your colleagues.
1. Select a country other than your own and conduct independent research on their early childhood assessment practices. Look for terms like formal, informal, formative, summative, authentic assessment, and the like. Note similarities and differences between this country and your own.
