Abstract

This paper describes a kindergarten applied curriculum-based assessment to integrate curriculum, teaching and assessment for improving the physical education programmes. A four-step process model was employed to provide continuous supports for teacher professional development. The effectiveness of the model was examined for evidence of whether the model helped teacher acquisition of knowledge and skills to apply curriculum-based assessment and strengthened their ability to use assessment to inform curriculum planning and instruction. The results indicated that improvement of teachers’ understandings of assessment practices and gross motor skill development was the result from curriculum-based assessment. Tailored-made workshops and ongoing professional support were highly valued by the teachers. Findings of the study may provide early childhood educators with useful information and examples of strategies that are useful for teacher development.
