Summary of Artifact:
The following artifact is a sample of anecdotal and running records I had taken as part of an Observation and Assessment portfolio for the Assessment I: Observation and Informal Assessment class I took at Kutztown University. We were required to select a student in a PreK-1st grade classroom and observe their behaviors and development over an 8-week period. I selected a student at the preschool that I was currently working in, and I observed and recorded aspects of his social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and linguistic development.

The anecdotal and running records I took represent my understanding and use of multiple methods of assessment to document learner progress. The time I spent observing and informally assessing C better informed me of his academic and behavioral development, and allowed to reach a deeper level of understanding for his strengths and weaknesses in and out of the classroom. I used my observations and records as a tool to inform our ongoing planning and instruction in the classroom.
