Teaching Strategies is pleased to announce that GOLD® has been selected for use in the Colorado Results Matter child and family outcomes system.


GOLD® is an ongoing observational assessment tool based upon years of feedback from thousands of educators and important new research about how children develop and learn.

GOLD® is an assessment system that helps teachers be intentional in their teaching by accurately pinpointing where children are in their development and learning. It’s a teacher-friendly, easy-to-understand approach to observation, documentation, portfolio-building, and reporting–the essential components of a high-quality assessment system.

GOLD® Subscription Pricing


Results Matter and the Colorado Department of Education have negotiated special pricing and arranged with Teaching Strategies for Results Matter participants to subscribe to the system.
