Christie Chandler, Early Intervention Director, Rainbow Early Intervention - September 28, 2021
“I like that [the AEPS-3 test] is seamless between the two age groups. It will make it easier to move with the child as they age and help all involved with the child collaborate on the best plan of action for them.”
Lisa Stapleton, TEIS Coordinator, Morristown Hamblen Child Care and Early Intervention - September 28, 2021
“The new way of scoring [with AEPS-3] will be more efficient than before. A 1 can give different information on how the child is emerging in that skill and the assessor can see how child is improving on an emerging skill. For example, going from 1 AI on a skill to a 1A or 1I helps to show improvements.”
Rachel Pace, Developmental Therapist, Blind Early Services TN (BEST) - September 28, 2021
“I tend to be the sort of person who needs concrete examples, and I MUCH prefer the word changes on several items [on the AEPS-3 assessment] … Overall, I think many of the items are phrased in a way that is easier to explain to families, and therefore easier to obtain information about where to go next.”
Christy Kaylor, Teacher, University of Kentucky Early Childhood Lab - July 1, 2021
“I am excited to use the new AEPS-3 in the classroom because it is now one test for ages birth to six instead of having two separate age ranges … it will be awesome for the families and teachers to see multiple data points, not only from a single school year, but also as the children transition from the infant classroom to the preschool classroom over the years.”
Nancy Miller, Former Student Services Consultant, Blue Valley School District, KS - July 1, 2021
“The addition of the two new areas (Literacy and Math) are welcome components of the tool. I’m not a fan of pushing down higher developmental skills on younger children, but there are developmentally and age-appropriate math and literacy skills that are addressed in most child care and preschool programs. I believe teachers and parents will both be excited to have these and, hopefully, it will encourage developmentally appropriate goals for children in these areas.”
