Abstract

Starting from a theorical-methodoligical framework on the formative function of observation of the teacher inside the classroom, the article presents the PraDISI Scale for teaching observation in kindergarden. Notably, we discuss the idea of teaching quality that is at the base of this tool and its main structural
features. The PraDISI Scale, already validated between 2011 and 2013, was used during the 2013-2014 school year for the observation and formative evaluation in four different Italian kindergardens. The article describes the main results of this survey and critically discusses the potential of formative evaluation of the PraDISI Scale in relation to a quality educational curriculum in kindergarden.
