From the acecqa :
Educators use a variety
of strategies to collect, document, organise, synthesise and interpret
the information that they gather to assess children’s learning. They search for appropriate ways
to collect rich and meaningful information that depicts children’s learning in context, describes
their progress and identifies their strengths, skills and understandings (Early Years Learning
Framework, page 17; Framework for School Age Care, page 17).
using a variety
of methods, such as diary jottings, children’s comments and conversations,
photographs and examples of children’s work, to assist their reflection on children’s
experiences, thinking and learning.
We use pictoral, learning stories, general obs, daily reflection diary, surveys etc.. hoping this is enough of a variety
