Recording & Reporting: A Comprehensive Early Childhood Recordkeeping System.
Intended for early childhood teachers and supervisors, this booklet describes and illustrates a comprehensive recordkeeping system that is based on written observations. The full recordkeeping system includes daily classroom observational notes, monthly cumulative summaries, checklists, monthly plans, and bi-yearly progress reports. Daily notes and cumulative summaries are the basis for individualized planning. The cumulative record, a synthesis of previous observations and plans, is the basis for parent conferences and written reports. The recording system guides staff in making daily observational notes and anecdotal records, cumulative summaries, full class conceptual and skill charts, individualized plans, progress reports, and work folders. The reporting system aids staff in summarizing and evaluating parent/teacher conferences and writing reports to schools, agencies, and parents. Illustrations of behavior records, cumulative records, skill and concept charts, monthly plans, progress reports, conference summary, conference evaluation, parent reports, school reports, and faculty memos are provided.
