Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
It is the pre-school teacher's responsibility to keep a child's score records private. Any teacher that exposes a child's academic or behavior performance to the public outside of school is not ethical.
I would make sure that each child is fairly evaluated and assessed. No one child should be assessed and helped more than another child, unless that child has a disability.
I would not give a test or grade a child on academic material that is above their current knowledge. If I did that, then my assessment was not proper or is not complete.
Any of an educator's actions that could harm a child or student is unethical. So we have to watch out how we assess a student. We cannot insult a student by saying out loud "that was dumb or stupid" because the child or children would feel hurt psychologically. And it would be negative reinforcement.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

If I would want to assess a child accurately on a topic or knowledge of what was learned in a particular session, I would take one day of class to interview each student on what they know. At the same time while I do this, I give all the children an in-class activity or puzzle game to do while I assess each child individually. Say the topic was about dinosaurs. I would ask questions such as, which dinosaur is the carnivore, the T-rex or the triceratop? And if there is more than 10% of the class that got the question wrong, I would have to redo the lesson on dinosaurs.
