Scottsbluff Bear Cub Preschool students score high on Teaching Strategies GOLD assessment

Posted: Updated:
Throughout the school year Scottsbluff Bear Cub Preschool students are assessed on learning and development objectives using the Teaching Strategies GOLD assessment. Teaching Strategies GOLD is an observation based assessment used in conjunction with the preschool curriculum. It is based on 38 research-based objectives that include predictors of school success and are aligned with the state standards and state early learning guidelines.  These help teachers focus on what matters most for children’s success.

The assessment is based on the widely held expectations for most children of the same age or same class/grade. This assessment compares information for each child, class, or group, placing children into three categories: below, meeting, or exceeding widely held expectations.  Bear Cub Preschool students’ spring scores in the following areas are as follows:

Three Year Olds

Social Emotional:  90.3% of all students met or exceeded widely held expectations
Language:  90.4% of all students met or exceeded widely held expectations
Literacy:  87.1% of all students met or exceeded widely held expectations
Mathematics: 64.6% of all students met or exceeded widely held expectations
