Assessment

Early childhood assessment is a tool used for documenting crucial information about a child’s development and growth and giving an insight into it to their teachers, families, and caregivers. 

Illumine’s assessment app for preschools makes assessing a child’s progress simple and easy for the teachers. You can document children’s growth against various milestones, assess their growth, and provide them support wherever needed.

There are majorly seven types of assessments for preschool children.

  1. Diagnostic assessment: It’s important to know what kind of kids you’ll be teaching before you formulate the assessment framework. You should learn about your student’s strengths, shortcomings, and abilities, and knowledge and create instructions based on them.
  2. Formative assessment:  The purpose is to keep track of student progress and provide input. It assists you in discovering the weaknesses in your training. You’ll know what to focus on for the future expansion of your instruction based on this feedback.
  3. Summative assessment: 
  4. Confirmative assessments
  5. Norm-referenced assessment
  6. Criterion-referenced assessment
  7. Ispative assessment

Illumine lets you record progress against milestones and development areas for every child. By default, the format is set to the EYFS framework but you can customize it according to your choice. Our platform is compatible with several curriculum structures including Montessori, Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (EYFS), and other country-specific frameworks.Accordion Content
