Documentation and Checkpoint

An ongoing assessment process is essential for gathering information about children to better inform instruction, classroom practice, and observation. The GOLD Class Profile Report and the GOLD Documentation Status Report should be pulled weekly to intentionally plan teaching opportunities. Teachers are able to determine each child’s level of skills and abilities by consistently analyzing and evaluation observation notes and portfolio samples. Sufficient documentation should be collected to accurately support assessment of each individual child’s knowledge, skills, and abilities. The Department encourages teachers to have at least two (2) pieces of documentation in each objective to finalize the end of the checkpoint period.
