West Virginia Pre-K Child Assessment System
The National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) has established the Early Learning Scale, a systematic assessment for preschool children designed for educators to use in assessing children's progress and informing teaching toward high quality early learning standards.
This assessment focuses on children's development over time, and measures student data collected through observation and work samples. WV Pre-K programs utilize the Early Learning Scale to inform teaching and assist with the articulation of children's development to families.
Educators will collect and analyze evidence of children's development on a regular basis. For reporting purposes, educators will also log in to the WVEIS-based platform below three times per year to input Early Learning Scale data.
Individual children's data can be entered during the above dates. Administrators and educators may retrieve or request reports as needed.
