Week 3 – Assignment

Choosing an Observational System

As a leader in the field of early childhood education, it is important that you understand principles of effective assessment and appropriate strategies for documenting what you are observing. The actual observing of children is fairly straightforward, but observation without documentation only provides a partial picture. It is the detailed records kept over time that reveal growth in many areas. “There are multiple published and unpublished classroom observation systems available for use, and deciding among them is the first step in putting an observational system to work in your organization” (Stuhlman, Hamre, Downer & Pianta, n.d., 2). For this assignment, you will model, in the form of a presentation, the depth of your understanding of each type of documentation technique. This includes not only the advantages and disadvantages of each, but also proper procedure and appropriate times to use each.
