This multimedia resource is designed to support practitioners as they implement Curriculum for Excellence at the early level. It shares practical ideas from a variety of pre-school and primary settings.
These materials are for all practitioners working with children in pre-school settings and Primary 1 or beyond. In this video, Avril Robertson from the Early Years team highlights the Assessment section of the resource which contains the following key messages:
- Assessment is an integral part of learning and teaching, and planning high quality learning activities for all children.
- Assessment provides an emerging picture of the child and their achievements, and can be a motivation for the child to do better and progress further in their learning.
- Assessment relates to the engagement of staff, children and parents, carers and the wider community in sharing and using a range of information to improve learning and development.To access the assessment section of the DVD on the early years website you can click on the link below:
