This month’s topic addresses ESE Services and Supports, including the impact of these supports and services on the learning outcomes of Pre-K ESE students. Turning our thinking to student outcomes is very timely as this is the time of year we prepare to assess the students who will be exiting Pre-K to determine their learning growth. In turn, this topic addresses the activities that influence their learning.
Please review the information linked to our topic of the month as well as the tools to support the child outcomes measurement system, BDI-2, and the exit assessment.
- For training in assessing using the BDI-2: Tip Sheets for Administration of BDI-2 Items
- For additional tools and resources for indicator 7 Child Outcomes Measurement: State Indicator 7; Child Outcomes
