Ongoing Child Assessment

Ongoing assessment is integral to curriculum and instruction. Our objective is to help children achieve school readiness and individual learning goals. We need to keep track of how the children are doing. Assessment information helps us monitor progress — both for individual children and for the program as a whole. Assessment information needs to be valid, reliable, and useful so the results can inform curriculum and instruction.

Systematic, ongoing assessment provides valuable information on children's learning and helps inform curriculum planning and teaching across all Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework domains.
