Update: Kindergarten Assessment Required Beginning Fall 2013

Background information is in Executive Numbered Memo issued on April 2, 2013. Additional information ran in past issues of the Assessment and Accountability Update (http://www.ode.state.or.us/wma/teachlearn/testing/asmtacty_update_04_18_13.pdf PDF).

We wanted to follow up earlier communications regarding the Kindergarten Assessment with an announcement that the Kindergarten Assessment website has been launched. This new website has information for parents, teachers, and early childcare providers including resources and toolkits. Right now, the site can serve as starting point for conversations about this assessment with stakeholders -- particularly parents -- to provide an understanding of what this assessment will mean for their children. The site will continue to be updated and expanded over the coming months.

You can access the website at: http://oregonearlylearning.com/kindergarten-assessment/.

And as always, if you have questions about the kindergarten assessment, please feel free to contact Kara Williams at kara.williams@state.or.us eMail.
