Abstract

Various assessments are used to evaluate students’ academic performance in early childhood education. I will share my research and summarize the assessments used to evaluate and then plan for students’ academic progress. The assessments discussed are formative, summative, screening, and standardized. Each assessment tool is utilized in public schools. Public schools, grades kindergarten to third grade, will be the focus of the presentation. Two interventions which result from various assessments are Response to Intervention (RtI) and Differentiated Instruction (DI). RtI is a program designed to support children who do not assess on grade level . These intervention groups are designed by teaching professionals to teach grade level material at different speeds to best suit the child. DI is a framework for efficient teaching using different methods. RTI and DI are both applied to each assessment tool. A final component of the presentation is to share communication techniques to share assessments to the families.
