This module has been developed to provide an understanding of how documenting and assessing children’s learning helps educators gain a deeper understanding of children’s interests, strengths and abilities, and how educators use this knowledge to support and extend children’s learning.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • The purpose of documenting children’s learning
  • Common myths about documentation
  • How to save time and make documentation more effective
  • How to use the documentation in your program
  • Practices and philosophies in some services

This module features:

  • Written information, interactive activities and reflective questions
  • Video interviews with educators at two services
  • Advice from Rhonda Livingstone, National Education Leader at the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA)
  • Insights from Anne Stonehouse AM, early childhood consultant and writer.

Once you’ve finished the module, you’ll be able to download and save a certificate of completion, plus your answers to the reflective questions.

This module takes an estimated 60 minutes to complete.
