Assessment in Aistear

 

Aistear provides lots of information on and examples of assessment-in-action in different types of early childhood settings. The Framework uses five assessment methods (self-assessment, conversations, observation, setting tasks, and testing) to gather evidence of children's learning and development across Aistear's themes. This evidence helps practitioners to build rich portraits of children as learners in order to celebrate their achievements and to help them take the next steps in their learning.
