According to the EYFS framework we should be assessing children against the 13 assessment scales yet the cards still refer to the stepping stones from the Profile. Does anyone know which we should be assessing on???? or do they expect us to do both

"Practitioners should continue to use the Foundation Stage Profile (FSP) handbook and booklet. From September 2008 it will become the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFSP).

 

All the early learning goals, except one, remain the same for the EYFS as they were in Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage. The only change is to one of the early learning goals for Linking Sounds and Letters which changes from: 'Hear and say initial and final sounds in words, and short vowel sounds within words' to: 'Hear and say sounds in words in the order in which they occur'. It has been proposed that this change should take place from September 2007. Further advice on this and a new Profile scales booklet will be provided by the QCA in due course. There has also been one minor point of clarification by removing the example from the early learning goal in Language for Communication, which now reads 'Speak clearly and audibly with confidence and control and show awareness of the listener'.

 

The early learning goals were not devised as assessment criteria. The FSP captures the early learning goals as a set of 13 assessment scales, each of which has nine points. Early learning goals are presented individually or have been split or combined, where appropriate, for ease of use.

 

The profile statements remain accurate descriptions of children's achievements in the EYFS. "

I do know that they are going to be introducing unit three and four from april (EYFS training) which is good news as it will concentrate on assessing and recording.
