I am a preschool teacher who currently uses this system in our school district. This assessment method is extremely time consuming and relies heavily on entering anecdotal records. I am constantly distracted in my classroom, watching for the children to perform one of the 36 objectives. The system discourages any type of direct assessment - you must "observe" the skill happening naturally. Most of the data entry is on my own time and takes HOURS! Even the short cuts, such as using the on-the-spot forms, is not really much of time saver as I still have to go into each individual child's anecdote and add child-specific information. The families are confused also by the report forms - this is not in any way "parent friendly". Run away from this system!!!! It's not good for the children or the teacher. INEFFICIENT AND DRAWS TEACHER AWAY FROM TEACHING!

I am a new teacher required to use this 'tool'. All assessments are designed to generate a report. The 'domains' to be assessed are created by this product. And now everything in the school is about getting the number of observations in and using the categories designated by the software. Teaching is tailored to the assessment. Teaching to the 'test' has now arrived in Pre Kindergarten. This was not what I trained to do.

I have been using this for almost two school years. It sucks! I am just a prek assistant, and I am required to take documentation and put it in computer just like the teachers. I did not get a pay raise or much training. It takes a lot of my day getting and putting in documentation. I feel like I am not teaching the kids or even teaching to the test because I am just giving them the test to see what I can get for documentation by the dead line. The people selling this told us it would take 15 to 20 minutes a day to put in documentation but that is a lie it's more like an hour or more pending on how you take documentation. The first year it went district wide it was down until Nov. and the first report cards had to generate last minute by hand. The first time we were able to use it to print report cards the teacher told me she spend a whole day of spring break leaveling the kids ( doing report cards). The parents are confused by the reports generated. I help what I can because I know what I get done makes it easier on both of us in the long run. I like most of the objectives and the way the creative curriculum sets up the beginning of the year other than that it is not good and super time comsumming. It does scare teachers away from teaching because I have my teaching degree and there is no way I want to deal with all the added stress it offers.
