Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA)

Who:  Kindergarten
What: Social Foundations, Language/Literacy, Mathematics, and Physical Well-Being
When:  Within the first 45 days of the School Year

The KRA is a developmentally appropriate instrument that measures a child’s school readiness across multiple domains.  Understanding a child’s school readiness helps kindergarten teachers best meet the child’s needs.  The KRA determines each child’s readiness level from an evaluation of four domains: Social Foundations, Language/Literacy, Mathematics, and Physical Well-Being.  The KRA provides a snapshot of students’ abilities at the beginning of the school year.  Teachers collect KRA data on their students within the first 45 days of the school-year.
