This module expands on ideas and concepts developed in ‘Documenting and Assessing Children’s Learning’ by Dr Anne Kennedy.
While you do not need to have completed Part I to understand the concepts and examples presented in Part II, it is recommended that anyone unfamiliar with documenting and assessing practices complete Part I before beginning this module.
We start this module with a shared understanding that documenting and assessing children’s learning allows educators to identify and understand children’s knowledge, culture, abilities and interests.
The focus of this module is on using this understanding as the foundation of the educational program, future planning and each child’s learning and development. This module also explores how documenting, tracking and assessing children’s learning is an integral part of the planning cycle and features two case studies that examine two different approaches to documentation.
This module provides an understanding of:
- what documentation is and why we document and assess children’s learning
- the planning cycle
- quality documentation, and
- practical approaches to documenting and assessing children’s learning.
This module will take an estimated 60 minutes to complete.
