The authentic, ongoing, observation-based assessment system that helps teachers and administrators like you focus on what matters most for children’s success.
Grounded in our 38 research-based objectives for development and learning, GOLD® supports effective teaching and assessment, while providing you with more time to spend with the children in your program. Accessed through MyTeachingStrategies™, GOLD® automatically links teaching and assessment, making it easier to connect the dots across the most important aspects of high-quality early childhood education.
With GOLD®, teachers can:
- Use a variety of online tools to gather and organize meaningful data quickly, including online portfolios where children’s work can be stored;
- Create a developmental profile of each child to answer the questions, "What does this child know? What is he or she able to do?" that can be used to scaffold each child’s learning; and
- Generate comprehensive reports that can be customized easily and shared with family members and other stakeholders.
