Preschool Assessments

Students within the classroom are informally assessed every day. We note student’s strengths and we also determine if there are any areas of need. If there are certain areas of weakness, we create activities to practice the particular skill(s). 
Classroom Screener-
At the beginning of the year, each same-aged peer is 
given the Brigance III developmental screener that measures the 
preschoolers development to determine if there is a need to create extra
learning opportunities for specific areas. Areas of development assessed are 
pre-academic cognitive skills, motor skills,  language development, physical 
development, and literacy. 
Ohio’s Early Learning Assessment (ELA)-
This is a tool for teachers of all Ohio preschool age children to learn about the current level of each child’s skills, knowledge, and behaviors in the areas of Social Foundations, Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Well-Being, Motor-Development, as well as the Fine Arts. This assessment requires teachers to observe children during the natural course of the child’s day. The ELA is a continuous process of gathering information about the child’s learning as the learning is happening throughout the year. This process allows the teacher to form an understanding of the child’s development that will assist them in planning future learning opportunities. 
Brigance II Social-Emotional Skills Screener: Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)-
This is a developmental screening tool given at the beginning of the school year to measure age appropriate skills in the areas of speech, physical ability, social skills, and problem-solving skills. The data for the assessment is based on parent reporting. 

Resources from Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, and Physical Therapists Therapists collaborate with the preschool teachers on ways to incorporate age-appropriate fine motor, gross motor, and communication development activities.
