Implementing assessment into early childhood (EC) undergraduate courses necessitates supporting learners in informed and intentional ways; since knowing how to teach comes from within the act of teaching itself. Consequently their practical knowledge builds through deliberate events which stimulate further insight and skill in what they do. Taken-for-granted assumptions that undergraduate students bring to the classroom can be challenged in such ways that they make implicit ideas explicit subsequently changing them to correspond with their new practices. Students can “test” out alternative approaches in real classroom contexts and then refine their own practical knowledge through reflection.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
