Faith development and matters of the heart (dispositions) are areas where assessment is either viewed as too difficult or not possible to assess. However, like matters critical to one's mission not only is assessment of the expected outcomes an important exercise but it IS possible. After a brief introduction of some early childhood assessment principles, Dr. Milt Uecker will share information on how to set up a spiritual assessment plan and the means whereby the assessment data can be collected during early childhood. Participants consider the answer to these critical questions: What are some examples of measurable faith related outcomes? Can worldview be measured in young children? How can valid and reliable data be collected? What are the benefits of the data?
