There are 2 assessments that we complete here at Engadine Great Start Readiness Preschool.
*Completed by Parents/Guardians at Home 1x a year at the beginning of year
- The ASQ is a questionnaire that has specific age appropriate questions to be answered by the parent. Most people have no trouble understanding and completing the questionnaire. The questionnaire targets five skills: Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Problem Solving, and Personal-Social. After the questionnaire is completed it is then used by the preschool staff to determine whether the child's skills are on target or need help. If a skill is not on target the staff will design small group lessons that will help the child's skills improve.
-Below are the questionnaires used.
36 Month Questionnaire:Given to students ages 2years 10months to 3years to 10months

-The COR is an observation-based assessment of young children's knowledge and abilities in all areas of development. The COR is an observational tool. Teachers or caregivers spend a few minutes each day writing brief notes ("anecdotes") that describe significant episodes of young children's behavior.
-COR anecdotes, gathered on a child over time are systematically rated according to the COR framework, are the basic units of information that are complied and analyzed to provide a comprehensive portrait of each child's developmental gains and of the progress of the group as a whole.
