Improving systems of learning through the use of child standards and assessments

This chapter describes how ELC states are promoting the use of early learning and development standards, formative assessments, and kindergarten entry assessments through their ELC-funded work, with a focus on ways that the ELC has uniquely contributed to the states' efforts, as well as how the ELC has built on work that was on-going prior to the ELC grant. The purpose of this chapter is to describe key aspects of states' work in ELDS and formative assessment, highlighting lessons learned and considerations for the future. It is not intended to be a comprehensive description of every ELC state's efforts in this area but instead to illustrate various approaches and issues in these areas, based on information from eight ELC states.
