The national dialog on school readiness has shifted beyond its traditional focus, “readiness for kindergarten,” toward a more inclusive view highlighting the importance of readiness throughout early childhood and youth and extending to “college and career readiness.” This shift has been accompanied by major advances and innovations in technology, research, and educational practice. The webinar will focus on recent ATI research and innovations that can assist early childhood programs, local K-12 school districts and charters, and state departments of education in achieving goals related to the new readiness paradigm. The webinar will cover:
- Galileo School Readiness Scales and reporting tools for birth through 5 years.
- Empirically based growth rates in multiple developmental domains for children birth through 3 and 3 through 5 years of age.
- Forecasting performance on the grade three statewide tests based on Galileo assessments in kindergarten through grade three.
- Forecasting performance on the statewide tests based on Galileo assessments in grades three through 10.
