Language sampling - where you write down just what the child says through a conversation to analyse their use of oral language

 

Timed tracking - note what they are doing every 10 mins to observe depth of engagement

 

Leuven Scale type observation base on engagement and wellbeing

 

Filming/photographic observation capture

 

ipsative referencing where the child discusses their work in relation to what they think they've got better at
