EYFS Assessment - basics

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by Crownie13, Mar 3, 2012.

  1. Hello,
    I have recently qualified as a teacher and looking for an EYFS job. I have a few questions about how different people track/record EYFS assessment.
    - For reception children, do you just collect for the EYFS Goals or also for all points within 40-60 months.
    - Do you keep note of whether a child has achieved/nearly achieved a scale point continuously, or termly, or half termly?
    - How many pieces of written evidence do you collect for each scale point? Or does some evidence exist only in your head?
    - How do you gather and store the evidence?

    Thankyou so much. Any answers to any of these would be helpful.

    Read the EYFS handbook and practice guidance and statutory guidance . It has all the answers.
  3. I collect against just the ELG. I have a big A3 grid of the ELG for each child. All the notes, photos etc go into a profile book for each child. Every half term I go through their profile books and use my own knowledge of the children and tick off against the ELG on their grid. I use e profile in Oct , Feb and June and enter which ELG are achieved.
    ope this helps.
  4. Very helpful, thankyou!

    I have looked at the EYFS Guide books and it states to use professional opinion...hence I wanted to ask.
