Highscope Child Observation Record (COR) Advantage

COR Advantage is a whole-child assessment built on 36 items that are proven by research to best prepare children for school success. COR Advantage focuses on children’s naturally occurring activities rather than their performance on tests, allowing for a broader assessment of each child’s development. It can be used with any developmentally-appropriate curriculum, and assesses all key developmental areas of children’s progress.
