3 California Early Learning System 3

4 DRDP-SR © 4 California’s Early Learning and Development System  The California Department of Education has endeavored to capture a vision for the “what” and the “how” of early childhood education and to think about the way the components of our professional development system would fit into this vision.

6 The Desired Results System 6

7 DRDP-SR © 7 Purpose of the Desired Results Assessment System  Serves as a framework for documenting progress of individual children  Gives teachers concrete information to plan and modify curriculum for children  Document how children are benefiting from programs  Target technical assistance for ongoing program quality improvement

8 DRDP-SR © 8 Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP)  Individual child assessment  An observation-based assessment tool, not a test  Completed by each child ’ s teacher  Based on developmental research and theory  Includes developmental sequences of behaviors along a continuum

9 DRDP-SR © Foundations/Standards-Aligned DRDP Instruments  Infant/Toddler (DRDP-IT)  Preschool (DRDP-PS)  School Readiness (DRDP-SR)  School-age (DRDP-SA)

10 DRDP-SR © 10 Alignment of DRDP Instruments to the Foundations  Grounded in same current research  DRDP delineates a continuum of development for individual children which represent a sampling of core areas of development delineated in the Foundations  DRDP is organized by Foundation domains

11 DRDP-SR © Overview 11

12 DRDP-SR © 12 What is the DRDP-SR © ? Assessment for TK and K teachers to:  Observe  Document  Reflect on Learning, development, and progress of children’s readiness for kindergarten in 5 developmental domains

13 DRDP-SR © 4 Primary Purposes of DRDP-SR © 1.Psychometric measurement of children’s development in key domains of school readiness 2.Support transition between preschool and TK/K 3.Research tool 4.Professional development tool

14 DRDP-SR © Purpose 1  Provide teachers with a valid and reliable psychometric measurement of individual children’s development in the key domains of school readiness

15 DRDP-SR © What does the DRDP-SR © assess? Children’s development in key domains of school readiness  English Language Development (ELD)  Self & Social Development (SSD)  Self-regulation (REG)  Language and Literacy Development (LLD)  Mathematical Development (MATH) 15

16 16

17 DRDP-SR © Purpose 2  Link assessment information through the DRDP-PS © and the DRDP-SR © instruments that will support:  Common language for children’s development between teachers in preschool, TK, and K  The overall transition of children from preschool to TK/kindergarten  TK/Kindergarten readiness assessment  Curriculum planning

18 Earliest DRDP-PS level unique to preschool Middle levels overlap with DRDP-SR DRDP-SR/DRDP-PS Linkage Latest DRDP-SR level is unique to kinder- garten DRDP-PS DRDP-SR

19 Structure of the DRDP-SR © Domain Measure Definition Descriptor Each Descriptor describes observable child behaviors associated with that developmental level. Developmental Level Each Developmental Level specifies a point along the developmental continuum. 19

20 Using the DRDP-SR © 1 decision per page or screen 20 Developmental Continuum

21 DRDP-SR © Purpose 3  Use the DRDP-SR © as a research tool

22 DRDP-SR © Aggregate DRDP-SR © data to:  Understand and investigate developmental readiness of groups of TK/K children  To provide schools and districts with data for program improvement  Share results with families for common understanding of each child’s strengths and the path to continued development

23 DRDP-SR © An important caveat:  Using ratings of children’s learning based on observations conducted by the teachers who are being compared raises methodological concerns  Validity and reliability assumptions for the instrument only hold when the teacher provides an objective assessment

24 DRDP-SR © Making use of child and group reports  Get to know developmental competencies of children in your classroom  Use for curriculum planning for individual children and groups of children  Use for parent-teacher conferences  Use to support continuous program improvement efforts by teacher and principal

25 DRDP-SR © DRDP-SR © Provides Snapshot of Children’s Knowledge and Skills 25

26 DRDP-SR © Purpose 4  Use of the DRDP-SR © as a professional development tool that supports teacher understanding and instructional practice

27 DRDP-SR © A Professional Development Tool  In the process of using the DRDP-SR © teachers learn:  A valid and reliable method for observing, documenting, and reflecting on the learning, development, and progress of all children in their classrooms.  Detailed developmental information about each child based on specific research on child development  How to integrate information from other required assessments to inform their teaching

30 DRDPtech-SR ©

31 DRDP-SR © What is DRDPtech-SR © ?  An online data entry system for the DRDP-SR ©  An easy way for teachers to compile information about children in their classes  Offers teachers the opportunity to print out summary reports on individual children and groups of children UC Berkeley – B E A R C e n t e r 31

33 Child Developmental Profile Report: Valid/Reliable measurement for each DRDP domain

34 DRDPtech- SR© Progress report over multiple observation periods

35 DRDP-SR © Field Study Update 35

36 YEAR 2: 2010-2011  Field Study of revised instrument with 5 levels for all measures  Fall 2011 data collection in both TK and K classes  For spring 2012, welcome additional TK and K classes DRDP-SR© Field Study YEAR 1: 2009-2010  Both TK and K classes  Data suggested need for an additional level at the earlier end of the developmental continuum to capture all children 36

37 DRDP-SR © Teacher Feedback, 2009-10 DRDP-SR © Field Study  The DRDP-SR provided an accurate and complete picture of children’s development  DRDPtech-SR was user friendly  Teachers expressed some concern about how long the instrument took to complete but also expressed that it got easier as they went along.

38 DRDP-SR © Next Steps  Complete 2011-12 Field Study data collection  Calibrate the scale of measurement for the instrument  Prepare DRDP-SR © instrument for release in fall 2012  Release as a voluntary observational assessment tool for use in kindergarten and transitional kindergarten classrooms 38

39 DRDP-SR © Additional Handouts  DRDP-SR © Field Study: Overview  DRDP-SR © Sample Report: Fall and Spring  DRDP-SR © List of Measures  DRDPtech ©  Children Now DRDP-SR © Brief 39
