13 Questions? us at: Components of Engage Online Professional Development Coursework (eCIRCLE) CIRCLE Assessment System – Formerly C-PALLS+ Remote Coaching *Provided to teachers on a competitive-basis

14 Questions? us at: Assessment Overview The CIRCLE Assessment System is a newly revised version of the Center for Improving the Readiness of Children for Learning and Education (CIRCLE) Phonological Awareness Language and Literacy System (C-PALLS, 2004). Over subsequent years, the assessment system was expanded to include math (2008) and science (2013). However, educators asked our team of researchers to develop an integrated assessment system that would cover the content included in the Head Start’s Assessment Framework. 14

15 Questions? us at: Why Do Teachers Assess? Using Data to Improve Practice ASSESSMENT Collect Data ASSESSMENT Collect Data. EVALUATION Determine next learning step. PLANNING Choose resources and approach. TEACHING Supports students learning

16 Questions? us at: Why CIRCLE Assessment System? Well established reliability and validity when used with 3 and 4 year olds (relates to other tests and predicts child outcomes). Designed to be administered quickly and yield immediate feedback and suggestions for teachers. Texas School Ready! model research demonstrates that the CIRCLE Assessment System and the activity groupings/suggestions improved child outcomes.

17 Questions? us at: How often is the CIRCLE Assessment Given? The assessment is given three times out of the year.  BOY – Beginning of the Year  MOY – Middle of the Year  EOY – End of the Year Districts will provide dates for each of the assessment windows.

18 Questions? us at: Assessment Environment Have the child sit beside you in a quiet area of the classroom to complete CIRCLE Assessment tasks. Place the computer in a position that allows you to operate the keyboard while you and the child look the screen. *Note: The child should not see the screen during the phonological awareness assessments.

33 Questions? us at: 1. Rapid Tasks 60-second timed assessments that provide a snapshot of what a child knows at that given time.

34 Questions? us at: Rapid Letter Naming This assessment is given to evaluate a student’s ability to identify the alphabet.
