GOLD® Assessment Documentation

Connect with a Specialist

Hatch Early Learning and Teaching Strategies have partnered together to create HatchSync powered by GOLD®, a connection between the learning platform and assessment that captures preschool assessment documentation through the results of a child's independent play. Teachers can collect documentation more easily than ever before!


How Does it Work?

Ignite™ by Hatch is fully integrated with GOLD® by Teaching Strategies. As children play, data is collected on their progress and automatically sent to GOLD® as documentation in a child's portfolio. Ignite™ provides objective and ongoing documentation, accurately scored for 40 of the 75 Objectives and Dimensions in GOLD® by Teaching Strategies.

"The games and lessons are brightly colored, fun, and keep their attention. It is an extra tool to keep track of where my students are academically. It also aligns with TS Gold which we use to assess our students. Ignite reports have been a tremendous help to see where my students are struggling so that I am able to help them with those lessons."

Children play Ignite by Hatch...

  • Children play games that build the skills essential for success in Kindergarten.
  • Teachers evaluate the data captured and inform their instruction based on the unbiased information collected.
  • Progress information is captured and monitored in real-time through the Hatch Insights report dashboard.
  • The skills are aligned and matched to 40 of the 75 Objectives and Dimensions found in GOLD®.

...and the data collected seamlessly appear in GOLD®

  • Progress information that comes directly from the child's play is sent to GOLD® as documentation that teachers do not have to write or create themselves.
  • This documentation helps to answer the question "What does this child know"?
  • Teachers have even more documentation to inform their formative assessment decisions.


Success is Already Happening!

  • 150,000 children are actively learning while playing Ignite™ by Hatch for 30 minutes each week.
  • Millions of Ignite by Hatch game sessions have been captured and sent as documentation to GOLD®.
These numbers will only continue to grow as more classrooms access the benefits of the HatchSync powered by GOLD® connector.

Hatch has allowed me to put down my observation clipboard that I used to walk around with regularly and engage in more meaningful ways with my students. Knowing that Hatch is inputting data directly into Teaching Strategies GOLD lessens that burden for me and creates great opportunity to improve teacher-student interpersonal connections.
