Blair Koefoed

Introduction by Marie M. Clay

Recorders Christine Boocock & Jenny Wood

These guidenotes provide examples of how the recording sheets for the tasks may be used to record, score and comment on the responses of two children, Aidan and Chris. There are suggestions for anyone learning to give the survey and also comments on how the two teachers in the video work with their children. These guidenotes are designed to supplement a careful reading of An Observation Survey of Early Literacy Achievement.

An Observation Survey, The Video

Two teachers administer the Observation Survey to two children, providing a visual resource to assist viewers to understand the standard ways of administering and scoring the six observation tasks. This video is designed to supplement a careful reading of An Observation Survey of Early Literacy Achievement. It enriches understanding by presenting accomplished administrations which do not disadvantage the child being assessed. It shows how this survey can be given in a reliable, valid and fair way.
