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.
The Illinois Head Start Association has negotiated special pricing and arranged with Teaching Strategies for GOLD online participants to subscribe to the system.
