Programs to increase the school readiness of young children are now being asked to prove their worth, but excellent care and education of young children does not necessarily translate to performance in defined academic areas. While a well-planned and effective assessment program can inform teaching and program improvement, it can be inappropriate and harmful to base high-stakes decisions-like those that determine program funding or children's eligibility for services-solely or primarily on assessments of young children. Children from minority cultures, English language learners, and children with special needs also present assessment challenges.
