About GOLD®

GOLD® is an ongoing observational assessment tool–based upon years of feedback from thousands of educators and important research about how children develop and learn.

GOLD® is an assessment system that helps teachers be intentional in their teaching by accurately pinpointing where children are in their development and learning. It’s a teacher-friendly, easy-to-understand approach to observation, documentation, portfolio-building, and reporting–the essential components of a high-quality assessment system.
