Abstract

This review aimed to synthesise existing studies on assessment in early childhood education (ECE) in China. In order to expand our understanding of assessment in ECE in China and compare with the findings from Western studies, the review only focused on studies conducted in the Chinese context and published in simplified Chinese in the past 10 years. The studies included in this review can be divided into two categories: (1) studies focusing on the concepts and aspects of assessment in ECE, (2) studies focusing on the specific elements of the assessment process in ECE, including participants, standards, and instruments. Given the studies reviewed in this article, we pointed out directions for future research and practice that the concepts and aspects of assessment need to be defined and identified more clearly. Furthermore, particular attention needs to be paid to the diversity of participants, the unification of standards, and the localisation of instruments.
