ATI provides preschool educators an easy-to-use, comprehensive, online system that seamlessly integrates curriculum, assessment, and reporting. With preschool programs back in full-swing this fall, ATI has lots of news to share. We're excited to provide the following tools, enhancements, and client appreciation note:
  • enhanced goal-tracking within the Individual Development Profile
  • easy to manage child rosters within the new child Enrollment page interface
  • expanded child-progress scale detail available within the Assessment History Report
  • child-progress monitoring available throughout the year within aggregated data reporting
  • appreciation note from the Galileo Pre-K community
Enhanced Goal-Tracking within the Individual Development Profile
Goal-tracking is a key component in assessment and instructional planning. With this in mind, the Galileo  Individual Development Profile shows users how each child performs across specific goals. Most recently, the  Individual Development Profile now displays the date when each goal was documented as learned for an individual child. With the dates included in the report, educators and parents can enjoy more clarity in tracking and communicating child growth and development. This report is also available to parents within the Galileo  Pre-K Parent Center .
With the dates included in the Individual Development Report, educators and parents can enjoy more clarity in tracking and communicating child growth and development.
For more information about the Individual Development Report, check out our upcoming live Learning on Demand session,  Getting Ready for Parent-Teacher Conferences scheduled on November 5, 2018.
Easy to Manage Child Rosters within the New Child Enrollment Page Interface
The child Enrollment page has a fresh-new design with a highly efficient interface to assist users in quickly creating, managing, and viewing child rosters. For example, users can quickly view more information on each child, such as child demographics, by simply clicking the information icon next to each child name. The colorful buttons below the roster also make it easy to enroll or drop a child from each roster. Plus, the child Enrollment page layout is a perfect fit for viewing across multiple types of devices including iPads. 
With a new design and highly efficient interface, the child Enrollment  page allows user to quickly view and manage child rosters.

Expanded Child-Progress Scale Detail in the Assessment History Report
The Assessment History Report provides educators a convenient way to review a child's progress on a single page. After the latest enhancement, this report now displays more scale details to aid in results interpretation, allowing users to see the total number of goals for a developmental area together with the Developmental Level (DL) score minimum and maximum range. Additionally, teachers can view the total number of goals associated with each standard.
The Assessment History Report now displays more scale details to aid in results interpretation.
Teachers can use this information throughout the year to help identify at-risk children and address gaps in child learning. Learn more about the Assessment History Report and other powerful reporting capabilities in Galileo.
Child -Progress Monitoring Available throughout the Year within Aggregated Data Reporting
The Progress Report in Galileo is a helpful report that can illustrate the impact that occurs over time on child outcomes. Using aggregated data, the Progress Report is an indicator of the change that has occurred in children's development from an initial observation period to a subsequent observation period. True progress happens over time, that's why it's important to allow for the proper interval-length between start and end dates when aggregating data.
Using aggregated data across three intervals of time, known as "observational periods", the Progress Report in Galileo shows the percentage of children at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of a specific developmental path. This allows educators to accurately compare the level of development for children at the beginning of the year versus the end of the year.
With the end of the first observational period approaching at the end of fall, ATI reminds educators to update child observations and anecdotal notes for this period. This helps ensure that educators have the right data to plan for developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for the next observational period.
For a personal overview of  aggregated data reporting and the Progress Report, contact an ATI Field Services Coordinator.
Appreciation Note from the Galileo Pre-K Community
Preschool programs around the country partner with ATI as they work to achieve a variety of goals to improve student learning. ATI's goal for each of the these partnerships is to provide technology and service in support of these partner educators. In this regard, ATI received the following appreciation note from a client:
"ATI service has been exceptional and expeditious with meeting the needs  of our program. For example, whenever we needed forms/tools created to support the new Head Start Early Learning Outcome Framework, ATI responded accordingly."
