Preschool Assessment/Child Performance Assessment (CPA) is part of the assessment approach which is a process of obtaining information about student development that is planned, implemented, and reported by the teacher concerned

  • This process takes place continuously both formally and informally so that the teacher can determine the actual level of mastery of the student. CPA needs to be implemented holistically based on inclusive, authentic and localized principles. The information obtained from the CPA will be used by administrators, teachers, parents and students in planning follow -up actions towards improving the development of student learning
  • CPA can be implemented by teachers formatively and summatively. Formative assessment is carried out in conjunction with the R&D process, while summative assessment is carried out at the end of a learning unit, term, semester or year. In implementing CPA, teachers need to plan, construct items, administer, check, record and report the level of mastery of students in the subjects taught based on the Curriculum and Assessment Standard Document (DSKP).
  • CPA at Rskkids is a process that encompasses a variety of methods for obtaining information about student development and learning. It is a basic and important thing in the R&D process that is carried out on an ongoing basis.
The objectives of preschool assessment are as follows:
  • Track the growth and development of students according to age.
