Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Report


January 2012

Working over a six-month period that began in January 2012, the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Workgroup has developed recommendations for an Oregon statewide kindergarten readiness assessment. Workgroup participants included kindergarten teachers, district administrators, early educators, Department of Education specialists, researchers, Oregon Education Investment board staff and members of the Early Learning Council.

The council adopted the report’s primary recommendation, the composite approach, that will be piloted in fall 2012 and rolled out statewide in fall 2013.

The assessment will help local educators support their students’ strengths, and meet their educational and instructional needs. Educators will also be better able to identify needed resources and community partnerships that will strengthen children’s readiness to learn.
