Question description

According to child development specialists, one of the most accurate ways to learn about children is to observe them in daily activities” (Wortham, 2012, p. 117).  Among the many types of observation discussed in Chapter 5, anecdotal records, running records, time sampling, and event sampling are widely used in schools and centers across the nation.  For this discussion, you will begin to develop a plan for the observation types you will use in your written assignment this week, which involves the observation of an actual child.  Here is what you are asked to do:

  1. Choose either anecdotal or running records.  Describe the record type and explain its characteristics.  Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development, or language development (choose one), and what the purposes are for assessing that domain.
  2. Next, choose either time sampling or event sampling.  Describe the sampling method and tell what its characteristics are. Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development or language development (choose one that is a different domain from above) and what the purposes are for assessing that domain. 

Determining the Observation Site

For Weeks Three and Five of this course, you will be asked to complete an assessment as well as a developmental screening on a young child.  For this Learning Activity, you will find a child to work with for both of these assessments.  If you are currently working with children, you may request permission to work with a child in your class or center.  If you are not currently working with children, you may work with your own child, you may contact a friend or relative and request permission to observe their child, or you may choose one of the children from the table below.  Go to The Colorado Department of Education’s Results Matter Video Library and scroll down the list to find the titles of the videos for the child you choose.  Please make sure to watch all of the videos listed in the chart below for your chosen child.

 Student to Observe Video(s) to Watch
 Davana Davana and Sidney Painting Together
Davana and Jozlynn at the Sand Table
 Kyrill Kyrill and Kira at the Easel
Kyrill and Dylan at the Water Table
 Austin Austin and Sander at the Breakfast Table
Austin and the Broken Bridge
 Alicia Alicia in Several Activities

You must ensure that you can observe and assess the child on multiple occasions. You will need a minimum of two different assessment times, three is preferable. You also must ensure that you are working with the same child for all required assessments during this course.

For this activity, email your instructor with the following information:
  1. The child’s first name (do not use last names for confidentiality purposes)
  2. The age of the child
  3. The setting in which you will be observing the child (e.g. at home, a classroom setting, one of the videos etc.)
    • Please read pages 141 to 142 in Determining the Observation Site for more guidelines on how to choose a setting.
