The new DRDP(2015) - Released for Early Implementation!

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 12:00pm

The BEAR Center has concluded both pilot and field testing of the updated DRDP instruments! Through the state's management bulletin, the California Department of Education's Early Education & Support Division invited all EESD-funded programs to participate in the early implementation of the Desired Results Developmental Profile 2015 (DRDP(2015)). The suite of developmental observational assessments are valid and reliable for use with all children from early infancy to kindergarten entry. This year will be used to collect data for calibration and scaling of the new instruments. All agencies will be required to use the DRDP(2015) assessment beginning in the 2015–16 program year.
