Gathering Data to Understand and Support Childhood Development and Learning 

For this Performance Task, select a child you know (a relative,  friend’s child, etc.) who is between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years of  age to observe for a 45-minute to one hour period. Before you observe,  review the Ages & Stages resource from the American Academy of  Pediatrics for the age of the child you are observing. As you observe,  note your observations on the Running Record Form to refer to when you  write your paragraphs for this Assessment.

Note: In the Ages & Stages resource, the developmental domains are referred to differently depending on the age of the child.

Then, write 2- to 3-pages with the following two parts:


Part 1: Beginning a Development and Learning Assessment

Part 2: Assessment Planning 


  • Analyze the strengths and challenges of observing a child for a 45-minute to 1-hour period. (1–2 paragraphs)
  • Recommend two additional assessment strategies that would be  beneficial to gather additional data on the child you observed, and  explain why these strategies would yield useful development and learning  information about the child. (2 paragraphs)
