Top Five Reasons for South Carolina to Choose GOLD
Observation-based, strengths-focused, whole-child formative assessment.
Inform instruction without disrupting instruction capturing observations in the moment during your everyday interactions with children. Go beyond language and literacy requirements and ensure you understand each child’s holistic needs with a whole-child approach focused on each child’s strengths.
Ensure every child can demonstrate learning.
Because teachers can see children’s development and learning along a progression across the whole of the early childhood years birth through third grade, GOLD is uniquely inclusive of children with developmental delays and disabilities, children who are English-language or dual-language learners, and children who are advanced learners. GOLD fully aligns to South Carolina’s Early Learning Standards.
Automatic connection between curriculum and assessment.
Teaching Strategies connects your GOLD assessment data with daily instructional resources within The Creative Curriculum, creating an ongoing feedback loop that provides detailed guidance for individualizing learning.
Build powerful family partnerships.
Share high-quality, developmentally appropriate, and family-friendly activities, curated multimedia social-emotional learning playlists, and engage in two-way communication with families to reinforce classroom learning with meaningful home-learning experiences.
The only connected ecosystem in early childhood education.
Individualize learning with one platform, resources of the highest quality, and connected workstreams. Connect teachers, children, and families to engaging learning experiences, informative data, and build strong family partnerships.
