1. Week Three Written Assignment: Inclusive and Differentiated Learning and Assessments WLO 3 CLO 2,4. As you learned in the Iris Center module titled Universal Design for Learning: Creating a Learning Environment that Challenges and Engages All Students, assessment is one of the four key curricular components. Along with using assessments to make informed decisions about meeting the needs of children, you will also encounter the use of standardized assessments in your work with learners with exceptionalities. Currently there is a lot of controversy surrounding assessments and the role that they should play when working with young learners. Whether you agree or disagree with this practice, it is important that you know how to make sure you are using standardized assessments in the most appropriate way possible when working with diverse learners in inclusive environments. To prepare for this assignment, • Please refer to the Week Three Guidance for further tips and examples that will support your success on this assignment. • Read Principles and Characteristics of Inclusive Assessment Systems in a Changing Assessment Landscape. For your assignment, imagine that you have been asked to be a part of a task force for determining which standardized assessments your school or center will be using. Your supervisor has asked you to create an 8- to 10-slide presentation, to share with your colleagues, highlighting the key factors that need to be taken into account when selecting a standardized assessment that addresses the needs of all learners. In your presentation, • Describe how you will ensure that all students are included in assessments and how you will make decisions about how children participate in assessments.

Make sure to support your reasoning with at least one scholarly source. • Discuss how as an early childhood educator, you will collaborate with your colleagues to differentiate the assessment tools you will use to support the children you work with. The Inclusive and Differentiated Learning and Assessments presentation • Must be 8 to 10 slides in length (not including title and references slides) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. • • Must include a separate title slide with the following: o Title of presentation o Student’s name o Course name and number o Instructor’s name o Date submitted Must use at least three scholarly resources in addition to the course text. o The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types.
