Why do we assess preschool children?

The title of this article is “Why do we assess preschool children?” Ironically, this question represents the central tenet of what should guide our thinking when approaching assessment of young children. Very young children are exposed to a variety of assessments, from the height and weight measurements they receive at every well-child check-up, to intensive diagnostic developmental assessments. What needs to be understood and very clear is that before a child experiences an assessment interaction, those conducting the assessment must be certain of the purpose of the assessment and how information from the assessment will be used.

There are no more results.
