ATI provides educators an easy-to-use, comprehensive, online system that seamlessly integrates curriculum, assessment, and reporting. We're excited this season to highlight a few of the Galileo reports and curriculum resources that can play a powerful role in improving child outcomes. Galileo highlighted features include:
  • access developmentally appropriate learning opportunities with Galileo curriculum resources
  • analyze child progress on each assessment scale with the Outcomes Analysis Report
  • summarize learning for specific knowledge areas with the Knowledge Area Proficiency Profile
Access Developmentally Appropriate Learning Opportunities with Galileo Curriculum

The Galileo Pre-K Online Curriculum is an exciting and easy-to-use classroom resource which supports delivering developmentally appropriate learning opportunities.

When a program licenses Galileo, staff members and teachers are granted unlimited access to the Galileo curriculum, assessment, and reporting tools, all of which are online. All published materials are available from ATI and/or within the Galileo Pre-K interface, giving programs everything needed to successfully implement Galileo Curriculum.

Here's a reminder of several resources and materials available when using Galileo Pre-K Curriculum:
  • Galileo Pre-K Online Curriculum Guidebook - provides information on the research and theory behind the Galileo Pre-K Online Curriculum along with best instructional practices, scope and sequence, and implementation instructions.
  • Galileo G3 Activities and Lesson Plans - include 32 weeks of model lesson plans and over 1000 ready-to-use classroom activities. 
  • Storyteller Activities and Lesson Plans - offer bonus language and literacy activities and lesson plans designed for classroom use. May be used in conjunction with the Galileo G3 Lesson Plans to provide additional language and literacy learning opportunities to your children.
Storyteller, a language- and literacy-focused curriculum and assessment 
tool is included with the Galileo Pre-K Curriculum.
Analyze Child Progress on Each Assessment Scale with the Outcomes Analysis Report

The Outcomes Analysis Report  is designed with the needs of educators in mind. This report helps programs analyze progressive data for each of the Galileo G3 Assessment Scales in one report, with the ability to aggregate and dis-aggregate data for an entire program, center, class, or child.

With this report, users can select multiple scales and time periods for selected centers or classes. Plus, with its interactive display, the report lets you access additional data by clicking on several report links and graphical items. For example, by clicking on the "Advanced" column in the bar chart (outlined in red in the picture below), a table will open showing the children's names, summed scores and DL scores belonging to the "Advanced" developmental level.

Need to run the report for a custom group of children? Users can easily select and save a group of children to run future reports. These groups are called Child Groups , which can also be combined to form a Composite Child Group .

The Galileo Pre-K Outcomes Analysis Report allow programs to analyze progressive data for each of the Galileo G3 Assessment Scales. By clicking on the columns above, the user can drilldown and view more data relating to child achievement levels.
Summarize Learning for Specific Knowledge Areas with the Knowledge Area Proficiency Profile

Lets suppose an educator wants to summarize and communicate goals learned over time for an upcoming parent-teacher conference.
With this in mind, the Knowledge Area Proficiency Profile  (KAPP) can quickly provide a snapshot of the learning that occurs within specific knowledge areas. This report works by listing each knowledge area of a scale, the number of goals per knowledge area, and the percentage of goals attained by the child or children. KAPP also helps to show children's development overtime, view all scales at one time, and show a summary of the child's development.  

Within the selected observation period above, the KAPP report shows 42.3% of goals have been learned in 7 Knowledge Areas in the 3-5 years G-3 Literacy Scale.

At what levels can the report be run? The KAPP can be run at the Agency-, Center-, or Class-level thus providing a rich source of data for evaluation and planning at any level. Plus, the Individual KAPP report shows an individual child's learning in all of the Galileo G3 Assessment Scales thus allowing users to evaluate any areas of strength or areas which need more focus. It also helps answer important questions like:
  • which knowledge areas have children mastered or are close to mastering?
  • are there some children who have learned more than others?
  • what child variables need to be filtered on when running the report?
  • what variables that you know of could be impacting child achievement? 
In summary, the KAPP report can be used throughout the year to show an overview of developmental progression, thereby helping to evaluate readiness for new knowledge areas and make plans accordingly.

Galileo can help your preschool program achieve goals to ensure your children's educational success. For more information on the above topics or any other Galileo features, please contact our  Field Services Coordinators  for a personal overview, or visit  Galileo Pre-K Online .
