Have A Seat! Learning What Children Know Through Play

The link to the post-test and evaluation for this webinar is:  https://vte.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7OlNkVaLy2KF8pf

When we want to understand what children know and can do, we often turn to tests and other conventional assessment practices. However, what really allows us to get to know children is when we sit beside them and play. This webinar will provide a context for seeing authentic assessment as the means by which we get to know children and foster their development and learning. Recommended practices and research on how to assess children during play will be provided.

Objectives:

  • To better understand the how assessment, instruction, and play are synonyms and work in concert with one another
  • To use every day routines and interactions for assessing what children know and can do
  • To learn how to foster stronger relationships with children through authentic assessment practices
