Preschool Curriculum & Assessment Framework

Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework

The assessment frameworks provide a system for using standards in assessing children's progress.  They enable teachers to plan and implement curriculum that addresses specific learning standards and to observe and assess children's progress in acheiving these standards.   

The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework (PAF) was developed to complement the
Connecticut PreschoPAF picol Curriculum Framework (1999).  The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework is a curriculum-embedded tool for assessing 3 and 4 year old children in their preschool classrooms. The PAF describes 30 performance standards, or learning goals, for young children,and a continuum of skills (benchmarks) for 2 ½ to 6 years for each performance standard.  They include all aspects of a child's learning and are organized in four domains: personal and social development, physical development, cognitive development, and creative expression/aesthetic development.

All 30 performance standards are listed in the Flip Chart, with descriptions of the benchmarks and examples explaining what a child may do when performing at various levels.

The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework was developed to complement the Connecticut
Preschool Curriculum Framework (1999). The Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework was

child development.
