Language Development Assessment Tool
ECE educators need to be able to assess development all domains. However, language learning is more comprehensive than the others. Using the Language Development Assessment template and the Language Development Traits for Children Birth to 8 Years handout, to create a physical development assessment based on your State Standards for Early Childhood Physical Development. All sections must be thoroughly completed, except measurement since you are not actually performing the assessment. In the comments section of the template, include the following: Describe how you will observe the children’s ability to meet each milestone (through a specific activity or free play observation, for example). Provide examples of suggestions that could be made if a child does not show signs of mastering the milestone. Address how you will use your observations to enhance your curriculum planning.
