Teaching Strategies GOLD

Teaching Strategies GOLD is an authentic, ongoing observational system for assessing children from birth through kindergarten, proven to be valid and reliable by extensive field testing. It helps teachers observe children in the context of everyday experiences, which is an effective way to get to know them well and find out what they know and can do. Teaching Strategies GOLD is based on 38 objectives that include predictors of school success and are aligned with state early learning standards. These objectives are the heart of the system—teachers use them to focus their observations as they gather information to make classroom decisions. Teaching Strategies GOLD online has many user-friendly features that help teachers increase the effectiveness of their assessments as they identify children’s developmental levels and describe children’s knowledge, skills, and behaviors.
