We use “The Ounce Scale” (OUNCE) for the assessment of children ages birth through 3 years and Work Sampling System (WSS) for the assessment of our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten children.  Both are performance assessment tools that allow teachers to obtain a whole picture on each individual child.  The teachers are able to observe, document and evaluate children’s skills, knowledge, and behaviors using classroom experiences and activities.  Each child is assessed three times a year; fall, winter, and spring.

The assessment tools consist of a checklist of a child’s progression and mastery in seven different domains of learning.  There are narrative summary reports that are written and shared with the child’s family and with other educators as necessary.

For the Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten children, the teachers compile a portfolio for each child which contain samples of the work that best represents the individual child’s ability.
