Application: Child Observation Project: Part 4—Developing a Portfolio Plan

 

In your Week 3 Application, you conducted two observations as a part of your Child Observation Project. As you have been learning, the purpose of this project is to help you better understand and develop knowledge and skills related to effective observation and assessment strategies. Therefore, the project does not provide a holistic picture of the development and learning of the child whom you have been focusing your project on. Additionally, observation and assessment knowledge, skills, and data have little meaning in isolation—it is only when they are a part of ongoing assessment that they truly can be used for the intended purposes of supporting development and learning.

 

Portfolios represent "organized, purposeful compilation of evidence documenting a child's development and learning over time" (McAfee & Leong, 2007, p. 100). Building portfolios requires careful planning that takes into account appropriate expectations for children's learning and development and children's unique developmental patterns and preferences. For this Application, you will have an opportunity to develop a plan for building a portfolio, by describing additional data and related strategies that you would need in order to complete a comprehensive assessment that covers all the developmental areas of one child's development and learning.

 

Note: You will not be collecting the data that you identify in your plan.
