EDC Develops Early Childhood Assessment Trainings for RIDE


EDC is engaged in a new, three-year project funded by the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) to design trainings related to RIDE’s new early learning standards. Cindy Hoisington (shown at left), Christina Silvi, and Karen Anderson are developing eight online modules for preschool teachers—including videos, teacher-friendly resources, and information for supervisors and administrators—focused on effective early childhood assessment. Hoisington said, “We are working to align the trainings not just with the state’s new early learning standards, but with RIDE’s evolving teacher competency guidelines. The work involves a lot of coordination and is targeted to ensure that all of the information early childhood teachers receive about standards, curriculum, and assessment aligns and responds to differing levels of teacher knowledge and competency.”
