# Save Time with Math Shelf DRDP and Teaching Strategies Gold Math Reports

Math Shelf teachers can access DRDP & TS Gold Reports by signing into their Math Shelf Dashboard, clicking the Data Report link, and then clicking the DRDP or Gold link (top right).

As every preschool teacher knows the DRDP and Teaching Strategies Gold are time-intensive observational assessments that need to be filled out for each child in the Fall, Winter and Spring. These assessments require observing, documenting, and rating each child on dozens of motor, social-emotional, and cognitive skills three times a year. Imagine if Math Shelf could observe, document and rate each student's math criteria for the DRDP and Gold automatically and create a ready-made report for every preschool teacher in your center and organization.

Well, imagine no more, because now Math Shelf has a DRDP and Teaching Strategies Gold math report. These reports automatically observe, document and rate each child on the math criteria every day of the year. Math Shelf does all this work, so preschool teachers can spend their time on what's most important, teaching!

How It Works

Math Shelf aligned its early math tablet curriculum with the DRDP and Teaching Strategies Gold math criteria. Every night we measure where each child is in the Math Shelf sequence and record that child's math skills and knowledge. We then use this information to rate each student on the 7 COG MATH DRDP criteria, and the 4 Math Objectives in Teaching Strategies Gold. Every day we update our reports so teachers will have the most current information when they submit their DRDP and Gold data in the Fall, Winter and Spring.

Math Shelf teachers can access these reports by signing into their Math Shelf Dashboard, clicking the Data Report link, and then clicking the DRDP or Gold link. It's that easy!

Example Math Shelf DRDP COGMath Report

Below is an example of a Math Shelf DRDP student report. Students that are Math Kindergarten Ready score in the Integrating Earlier category for each of the 7 COGMath ratings.

Example Teaching Strategies Gold Math Objectives Report

In the Math Shelf Teaching Strategies Gold Report, children that are Math Kindergarten Ready have a total math score between 35 and 53. As this example shows, teachers can view student skills and knowledge ratings for each math objective, and the total math score.

Save Time for Teaching

Let Math Shelf do the work of observing, rating and scoring children's math performance on the DRDP and Teaching Strategies Gold. With the time you save, consider teaching Math Shelf Hands-on Lessons.
