Helping Families Understand Standardized Testing

One of the most important responsibilities you have as a leader in early childhood education is making sure that families understand their child’s growth and development. Sharing assessment information with families about the standardized tests that are being used with their child is an important part of this process. “Not all standardized tests measure the same knowledge and skills. Some are designed to predict student performance, while others are designed to measure a student’s knowledge as compared to peers across the country” (Beaupré, 2002). Therefore, it is important to be proactive in explaining to parents which assessments you use and why.

For your assignment, you will create a brochure for families about the standardized assessments that you use to ensure their child is growing and developing at the appropriate rate. You may use Microsoft Word to create your brochure. Your brochure should be based on the standardized tests that are used with the age (infants/toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged) of children you plan to work with. 

Your brochure must contain sections with the following guidelines:
