Early Years Assessment and Learning Tool update

Practice videos and eLearn series available to services using the Early Years Assessment and Learning Tool in 2023.

An early childhood professionals sits on the floor with a young child, both focusing intently on arranging colourful puzzle pieces. Other children play quietly in the background.

The Early Years Assessment and Learning Tool is open to Victorian early childhood education services that were successful in the department’s 2022 expression of interest process. 

The tool is designed for use by teachers and co-educators. Through its 8 modules, the tool guides quality assessment and observation practice of play-based learning aligned to the 5 Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) learning and development outcomes:  

Support with using the Early Years Assessment and Learning Tool 

To support services using the tool, we have developed an eLearn and a video series on assessment and the planning cycle practice with dedicated fact sheets on each of the tool’s 8 modules.  

These resources guide teachers and co-educators through best practice in assessment and learning, intentional teaching, and how to build and embed knowledge and understanding of the tool through the VEYLDF and Early Years Planning Cycle.  

The eLearn module has 2 units specifically designed for teachers and co-educators in their first year of using the tool. The practice videos and fact sheets can be used by all early childhood education services interested in improving their assessment and learning practices.  

For those services not using the tool this year, but that are interested in doing so, another expression of interest process will open later in 2023.
