Miss Kathy's Class designed this developmental checklist to assist with gathering play based assessment data over time. It incorporates the Teaching Strategies GOLD objectives for development and learning. There is an added a functional / pre-academic piece ( not part of the GOLD) which assists with documenting student growth, for teacher evaluation purposes.
When the Developmental Growth Tracker and narrative summary is combined with the use of an authentic portfolio system of assessment, it provides a well-rounded picture of what children can do and how they are progressing over time.
This tool uses the GOLD objectives that are easiest to sample, that show growth over time, and that lend themselves to the unique ways children go about doing things.
