The following link provides information about the extent to which several assessment tools and curriculum materials align with Pennsylvania's Learning Standards for Early Childhood. It is not the Department of Education's intention to make specific recommendations with the regard to the items on the lists provided rather to provide guidelines for decision making. The assessment tools listed were chosen because they were evidence-based and have demonstrated technological adequacy for the preschool and elementary school age groups.
The list of assessment tools focus specifically on assessment for the purpose of informing instruction; thus, the measures are all appropriate and feasible for administration by teachers and other classroom personnel.
