Directions for Using the Alaska Developmental Profile.
Alaska State Dept. of Education and Early Development, Juneau.
This brochure provides information to educators about the Alaska Kindergarten Developmental Profile, which is prepared for each child entering school. The profile includes developmental information in the areas of physical well-being and motor development, language and literacy development, personal-social development, thinking and cognitive development, and child background. It is designed as a global measure to provide summary information from each school site to the Alaska Department of Education. It is not an assessment in itself, but the framework for the categories of developmental information that are to be assessed at the school level. The Department believes that districts are in the best position to decide how to gather detailed developmental information about each child, and they are expected to choose the methods they wish to use to gather the information. A resource guide lists some direct and indirect assessment instruments educators may wish to use and tells where to get these instruments. A sample data collection plan is included. An appendix contains the Kindergarten Developmental Profile. (SLD)
