Preschool Assessment Information

  • Clear Creek Amana, and it’s partnering programs at Sprout Kids Academy and Little Clippers will continue to use Teaching Strategies Gold to support children’s academic as well as social emotional development.  Gold assessment is an authentic part of instruction, not a disruption.  Embedded in everyday interactions with children in the classroom.  This type of formative assessment is an effortless, organic part of the teachers’ day.  Gold captures, organizes, and stores notes, videos and digitals samples of student work in the moment to make observations authentic, objective and easy to remember.  

    Information collected in Teaching Strategies Gold is 100% confidential and will be shared out with families through PLPs as well as email and other conferences.  There are 3 check-points throughout the year:  11.19.21, 02.25.22 and 05.27.22.  Families will also have opportunities to share specific student strengths and interests.  Input, along with Gold data will help teachers develop just the right activities to meet the needs of the students.
