PALS-PreK is designed to be administered to four-year-olds in the fall of PreK in order to guide instruction during the year. A second administration in the spring of PreK serves to evaluate progress.
The best interpretation of PALS-PreK results includes using child-level results to help meet children’s specific needs and classroom-level results to guide instruction for the whole group. Scores from an entire classroom can inform teachers’ curriculum planning so that they can provide and enhance opportunities for exploration and language-based literacy instruction for all children.
