The Alaska Developmental Profile User's Guide.
Alaska State Dept. of Education and Early Development, Juneau.
Under the state's Quality Schools Initiative, each Alaska school is required to take a number of steps toward improving the quality of education. This brochure provides information to educators about the first requirement of the Quality Schools Initiative: completing the Alaska Developmental Profile. This profile is completed for each child entering kindergarten or first grade to help families, schools, and communities support the educational needs of young children. The Profile includes developmental information in the areas of physical well-being and motor development, language and literacy, personal and social skills, thinking, and cognition, along with background information and health, preschool experience, and any special needs. The profile provides summary information for the Department of Education and Early Development, but the choice of assessment measures is left to the school district. This brochure contains information on assessing young children. A resource guide lists assessment measures that may be appropriate and tells where to get them. A sample data collection plan is included. (SLD)
