Lisa Stapleton, TEIS Coordinator, Morristown Hamblen Child Care and Early Intervention - September 28, 2021
“For parents, I think [the addition of the Summary of AEPS-3 Results page] is a better way of showing results to our families. This page is also going to be more effective with families when completing the next assessment as families will be able to see the results side by side.”
Karey Dennis, Early Childhood Special Education Teacher, Fairfax County Public Schools - September 28, 2021
“This curriculum-based assessment will help teachers make data-driven decisions for instruction and goals.”
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 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 feel that the authors have gone to great lengths to maintain the integrity of AEPS in adding these two test areas. I believe both teachers and parents will be excited to have these and, hopefully, it will encourage developmentally appropriate goals for children in these areas.”
