“Teaching Strategies GOLD is a valid and reliable observational assessment system for children birth through kindergarten that helps teachers understand and guide children’s development and learning. Now, educators can add a rich layer of observation and documentation to the assessment process by integrating data collected through the iStartSmart system from Hatch,” said Diane Trister Dodge, Founder and President of Teaching Strategies. “This alignment will save teachers time, offer more evidence of what children know and can do, and ultimately strengthen teachers’ ability to individualize instruction for each child. We are thrilled to partner with Hatch in this effort.”
