Professional Development

for BRIGANCE Head Start

Setting You Up for Success

Competent examiners are well versed in their instruments, from selecting an age-appropriate tool, to spotting the difference between marginal, emerging, and inconsistent skill mastery, to staying “on script” when necessary and scoring accurately. 

The goal is to collect the most accurate results possible, and in turn, identify the most appropriate—even life-changing—next steps. 

Assessment, like Head Start itself, is high-stakes work. With our professional development offerings, we aim to make the BRIGANCE screeners and assessment tools easy to use and understand, so program professionals can concentrate on getting accurate, actionable information to keep each child’s development on track.
