Developing Meaningful Observational Assessment Half Day Autumn $75.00

Developing Meaningful Observational Assessment

Course description

Observational assessment is critical in enabling practitioners to identify significant aspects of children’s learning and development. It is essential that practitioners understand how to undertake sensitive observational assessment in order to develop provision and practice that meets young children’s needs. To successfully support and facilitate progress we need to look for more than we expect to see.  Therefore, it is a skilled and skilful process, both intuitive and deliberate and is neither clear cut, simple or straightforward.

Through the use of EExAT video exemplifications and practical activities, this in-depth course explores manageable and meaningful approaches to observations, using the EExAT system for recording and demonstrating progress – and provides opportunities for participants to review and utilise their understanding of the children they work with.
