A primary responsibility of early childhood teachers is to observe, document, and respond to data that describes students’ behavior and abilities.

Part 1 Graphic Organizer

For this assignment, select three data collection tools you have either researched or observed in a classroom setting. Develop a graphic organizer comparing the three data collection tools, identifying the benefits and drawbacks of each tool, and the appropriate use of the tool to measure data in the classroom.

Part 2 Reflection

In a 250-500 word, reflect upon the following:

  • Which data collection tool, of the three identified, do you plan to use in your professional practice? Rationalize your choice.
  • Who are the stakeholders with whom you will share the data you collect on students’ behaviors and abilities?
  • What are the legal ramifications of sharing data with outside stakeholders?
  • Identify and describe two strategies you will use to ensure that the confidentiality of students is protected.

Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly resources.

Submit both the graphic organizer and the reflection as one deliverable.
