This introductory course is the first in a three-part series dealing with the assessment of young children.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to define assessment, list why it is important for teachers to assess young children, list the four basic areas addressed by developmental milestones, and define “performance-based assessment”. Upon successful completion of the course exam, students will receive 0.1 IACET CEU and immediate, unrestricted access to course documentation.
