NAEYC Standards: QVCC Rubrics

The following pages reflect the Standards for Programs as established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which accredits the College's Early Childhood Education program. Also included in the following document is a rubric based on these standards, for the assessment of student work-sample portfolios. This rubric also includes compiled results for students' assessed work from the previous semester as an example of assessment results. Rubrics have been developed over the period of several years as early versions have been written, applied, and revised, including feedback from students who themselves actively use them throughout their ECE classes. In the process, the rubrics and the assessments which incorporate them are meant not only to build up a body of summative `results' at the end of a class or program, but most importantly are tools to engage both faculty and students in a deliberate, ongoing process of formative and collaborative self-assessment.

Portfolio/Work Sampling System What is a portfolio? A comprehensive collection of teacher observations and children's work to document the child's progress in all developmental domains. What are work samples? Any of the child's products, including but not limited to visual arts, all of which reveal many aspects of the child's development. Assignment: Develop a portfolio on a specific child in the classroom o Collect anecdotes, photos, artifacts and work samples to show child's growth over time in all domains. Domains: Broad areas of growth, categories of classroom learning. Personal Social: feelings about self, disposition, making friends, favorite playmates, conflict resolution, functions in play group, turn taking, on task time, empathy Language/Literacy: reading and writing skills Mathematical Thinking: Patterns and relationships, number concept, matching, sorting, comparing, shapes, parts/wholes etc... (see handout) Scientific Thinking: Active investigation, questioning, prediction, drawing conclusions, sensory exploration, vocabulary, use of "tools" Social Studies: Social and cultural understanding, familial and societal roles, assuming/assigning roles Creative Expression/Aesthetic Development: Dance, drama, music, visual arts Physical Development: gross motor, fine motor, self help skills o CT Preschool Assessment Framework Connections: Relate your observations to the CT PAF. For each domain you will choose a performance standard and you will relate your observations to the benchmark and describe the level of achievement.

o The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework is a curriculum-embedded tool developed to be a companion to The Preschool Curriculum Framework. These curriculum and assessment frameworks provide a system for using standards in both planning curriculum and assessing children's progress. Next Steps/Teaching Strategies: State what your next goals are for the child in each domain. You will also develop recommendations for future learning experiences. On the basis of your observations, identify particular strengths that your child has demonstrated in each domain and also skills that appear to be important or timely target for the child in the future. This should be included at the end of each section. Write a Narrative: Provide an individualized narrative profile of the child's strengths and areas for growth across the seven domains. o Write down phrases that describe the child's strengths and areas for growth in each domain. o To individualize the child's report, use the phrase "for example" or "as shown by" followed by a reference to an observational note or a piece of work. o This narrative will be used as a guide during the parent conference.

Specific Portfolio Requirements The portfolio should be typed using the work sampling template Include artifacts: pieces you collect-artwork, photos, work samples, anecdotes, writing samples (date all work) Spelling, grammar and clarity of organization all contribute to your final grade.
