HDF 400 – Developmental Assessment of Children Big Ideas – Week 2 – Classroom Assessments Why is it important to assess the environment young children spend time in? It’s difficult to assess young children developmentally appropriately and accurately. Standardized scores for children under the age of 8 years old can be unreliable. Research links high quality early care and education experiences with positive outcomes in all domains both short and long term. Latest research shows these positive effects last into the high school years The higher the quality—the more positive the effects. Greatest areas of growth can be found in children who are from families with low SES (socio economic status). AS A RESULT Classroom/program assessment tools are used instead of or in conjunction with formal standardized testing for high stakes evaluations.
