Authentic Assessment for Head Start
End-to-end program documentation
Educa fully supports Head Start programs with a systematic approach that fosters authentic using the DRDP through a learning story-based data cycle. It supports:
- Individualized learning
- Parent engagement
- DRDP assessment ratings
Learning stories provide a blank canvas for an educator to fully capture the magic of early learning, the last step being a link to the DRDP.
The customizable story template includes a “What’s Next?” section where educators share differentiated planning.
Learning stories are written to be read. The narrative format is less intimidating, feedback is more natural.
Stories nurture informed family feedback based on an understanding of the educator’s approach and the learning that is happening.
Ratings auto-populate from story links as evidence. Educators can also add observations manually. Send PDF reports to families, upload data in Excel to regulators.
