1 NAEYC Erly Childhood Progrm Stndrds nd Accredittion Criteri & Guidnce for Assessment This document incorportes the lnguge of ll NAEYC Erly Childhood Progrm Stndrds nd Accredittion Criteri, including 39 criteri tht re not currently ssessed by the NAEYC Acdemy. (For more informtion bout criteri tht the Acdemy does not currently ssess, click here). When pplicble, the lnguge of the criteri includes Guidnce for Assessment, which both explins how the criteri re ssessed by NAEYC nd clrifies the intent of the criteri. On April 1, 2014, five criteri were revised to reflect current best prctice. Red more. The entries below contin the following informtion: Guidnce for Overll Rting Gry bckground; justified left; pplies to overll criterion to indicte when n overll rting is pproprite. Guidnce for Specific Indictor Gry bckground; indented; pplies to indictor listed bove. Guidnce for Overll Criterion Gry bckground; justified left; pplies to entire criterion nd ll indictors; bolded print indictes new guidnce. Criterion Number Age Ctegory I = Infnt T = Toddler/Two P = Preschool K = Kindergrten Assessment Ctegory Required Alwys Assessed Rndomly Assessed Emerging Prctice Not Currently Assessed Source(s) of Evidence O = Observble Criteri PP = Progrm Portfolio CP = Clssroom Portfolio TS = Teching Stff Survey FS = Fmily Survey 3.B.12 T-P-K Rndom O, FS, PP Rte NoOpp if no chllenging behviors re observed. Techers ddress chllenging behvior by ssessing the function of the child s behvior. convening fmilies nd professionls to develop individulized plns to ddress b behvior. Rte NoOpp if no evidence is seen in the clssroom. The individulized plns do not hve to be forml IEPs, but my consist of informl meetings, phone clls, emils, nd/or other modes of communiction to discuss plns to ddress the behviors. c using positive behvior support strtegies. Evidence my include such things s policies, exmples of how the progrm ddressed chllenging behvior in the pst, or notes between prents nd techers. Definition of chllenging behvior: Chllenging behvior is ny behvior tht (1) interferes with children s lerning, development nd success t ply, (2) is hrmful to the child, other children, or dults, [or] (3) puts child t high risk for lter socil problems or school filure. (Kiser & Rsminsky, Chllenging Behvior in Young Children (2 nd Ed.), Person Eduction Inc., 2007, p. 8). Exmples of chllenging behvior: Physicl ggression (hitting, biting, shoving, whcking with toys), reltionl ggression ( You cn t ply with us, verbl bullying), tntrums, whining, testing limits, refusl to follows directions or observe clssroom rules.) When reding guidnce, note the possible rtings used by NAEYC Assessors nd their definitions below: Yes : Evidence is found; criterion or indictor is met. No : No evidence is found, or evidence is insufficient to meet criterion or indictor. N/A (Not Applicble): The criterion or indictor does not pply to this group. The N/A rting is only vilble if it is noted. NoOpp (No Opportunity): There ws no opportunity to observe the criterion or indictor during the specific observtion. The NoOpp rting is only vilble if it is noted. While NoOpp my be used for specific, timelimited observtion, it is expected tht groups disply evidence of the criterion sometime throughout the dy. Not Age : The criterion or indictor does not pply to the ge ctegory being observed. The Not Age rting is only vilble if it is noted. Definitions of terms used throughout guidnce: Vried or Multiple : More thn one. Such s or for exmple : Exmples which my be used s evidence but do not necessrily need to be seen to meet the criterion or indictor Ntionl Assocition for the Eduction of Young Children.
