Developer's Corner

Many educators are looking for ways to integrate assessment results with the planning and development of opportunities for learning. For those educators who want assessment to inform curriculum decisions Outcomes Express provides a way to achieve this goal. Using Outcomes Express assists teachers in the process of individualizing activities to enrich each young child's classroom learning experiences.

Outcomes Express combines teacher observation with direct assessment of a child's skills via computer-based assessment. This software program offers teachers an easy way to sample the child's skills across the domains and elements that are traditionally incorporated in early learning programs.

Once assessments for all children in a classroom are completed, the Classroom Summary Report aggregates student data across domains. Results of this analysis generate lists of small groups of students who can benefit from activities targeted to enhance the acquisition of abilities and skills in specific domains and elements.

Recommended learning activities that specifically tie assessment results to curriculum are then printed for each small group. The recommended learning activities promote children's development and acquisition of concepts and skills delineated to the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework and school curriculum. The age range of activities assessed is 2 yrs. 9 months to 5 years, 11 months.
