Here’s an exemplary product that measures a wide range of children’s skills and abilities, has been fully validated by an external party, fosters a strong parent-child connection, and enhances parents’ and children’s understanding of children’s learning.
There are little-to-no assessments available to parents of this age group that have been validated and are comprehensive, user-friendly and actionable.
The Assessment Center is a user-friendly environment within ABCmouse.com intended to empower parents to help improve learning outcomes for children that use the ABCmouse.com curriculum. It includes Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade assessments on a wide range of skills in math and literacy.
Children take some of the assessments by themselves and some with their parents. Each skill assessment takes between 2 and 8 minutes to complete and can be paused at any time. Reports for each child are generated and activities are recommended that are targeted areas.
The Assessment Center features 300 assessments and over 6,000 items. Each of the assessments measures a skill by providing parents with access to 3 forms to allow them to track progress over time while avoiding the danger of kids’ recalling the assessment items.
The assessments have undergone a rigorous development and evaluation process. They have been:
- thoroughly reviewed by leading education and assessment developers
- subjected to extensive in-house user-testing—for both content and design
- fully validated by independent evaluation experts at the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago.
And enjoy the monkeys!
