Assessment in Aistear is about gathering information to build rich stories of children as capable and competent learners. This information is about what children understand, how they think, what they are able to do, and their dispositions and interests. Practitioners use this information to provide interesting, challenging and enjoyable experiences for them, to choose appropriate supports for them, to encourage them, to document and celebrate their learning, and to plan the next steps.
