How many pages is this assigment?

Assessment is used for various purposes.  It is important to understand your role as a teacher or caregiver within the context of each purpose.  For this first discussion post, you will complete the first two columns of the Assessment Purpose KWL Chart (the final column of this chart will be completed in Week Five).  After completing the two columns, reflect on the following statement by Wortham (2012): “Assessments in the early childhood years have many purposes; some are beneficial for young children, and others are detrimental” (p. 21).  Discuss at least two examples of how some of these purposes can be beneficial and two examples of how they can be detrimental.  You may use personal examples, but be sure to support those examples with information from the text or outside resources.  

 

 Discussion must be at least 250 words.
