The Progress Report in Galileo is a helpful report that can illustrate the impact that occurs over time on child outcomes. Using aggregated data, the Progress Report is an indicator of the change that has occurred in children's development from an initial observation period to a subsequent observation period. True progress happens over time, that's why it's important to allow for the proper interval-length between start and end dates when aggregating data.
Using aggregated data across three intervals of time, known as "observational periods", the Progress Report in Galileo shows the percentage of children at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of a specific developmental path. This allows educators to accurately compare the level of development for children at the beginning of the year versus the end of the year.
Monitoring progress throughout the year.
With the end of the first observational period approaching at the end of fall, ATI reminds educators to update child observations and anecdotal notes for this period. This helps ensure that educators have the right data to plan for developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for the next observational period.
