Assessment & Reporting

 The assessment tools used for preschool are the AEPS ( Assessment, Evaluation and Programming System) and the COR (Child Observation Record).  The primary tool is the AEPS and  COR is used as a secondary tool with students in which the AEPS is not suitable to assess their needs.

AEPS is widely regarded as one of the best curriculum-based, criterion-referenced tools in the early childhood field. Study after study has shown that AEPS improves child outcomes.

Unlike tools with add-on tests or activities for children with disabilities, AEPS was designed to link assessment, goal development, intervention, and evaluation for the purpose of improving outcomes for children with disabilities or developmental delays. Extensive research and field-testing show that the comprehensive, seamlessly linked AEPS is reliable and valid and results in measurable, meaningful progress for children birth to 6 years. And not just for children with disabilities—all children, including those who are typically developing and those who are at risk.

The highly sensitive AEPS Test accurately measures children's progress in six key developmental areas: fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, adaptive, social-communication, and social. 

The Preschool COR outlines the various stages of development of children from the age of two to five.  The COR is arranged in six categories:  Initiative, Social Relations, Creative Representation, Movement and Music, Language and Literacy and Mathematics and Science.
