The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has designed a two-part online professional development series to support early childhood educators’ knowledge and skills in child assessment.
The modules in each series are designed for individual viewing at your own pace. We recommend that you view all modules in Series 1 before moving on to Series 2.
You can receive PD hours by completing a survey and a self-assessment activity using the Workforce Knowledge and Competencies framework relevant to your position.
You can receive 1 PD hour for viewing all three modules and 1 additional PD hour for completing the self-assessment activity. Instructions for obtaining a certificate of completion are included at the end of the third module.
Series II: Formative Assessment in Early Childhood Settings is comprised of six modules designed to help early childhood educators understand and implement the formative assessment process.
You can receive a total 4 PD hours for viewing all six modules and completing the survey and self-assessment activity. Instructions for obtaining a certificate of completion are included at the end of the sixth module.
