Kindergarten Assessment Resources


News Announcements

This webpage is designed to provide resources specifically to help district and school staff administer the statewide Kindergarten Assessment. For more information about Oregon’s Kindergarten Assessment, visit Oregon's Early Learning System Website.

Overview

Beginning in fall 2013, school districts are implementing the new statewide Kindergarten Assessment in early literacy, early math and approaches to learning. The assessment is designed to focus on domains that are strongly linked to 3rd grade reading and future academic success as well as to align with current assessment practices in Oregon’s kindergarten and elementary schools. The information provides a snapshot for communities and schools on the fluency, numeracy, and approaches to learning skills that students have when they enter kindergarten. For more information on the research behind the measures, please consult the Kindergarten Assessment Summary Report PDF.
