Please review the Updates tab in the professional development site in order to see all updates to the assessment and the technology system. All updates have been embedded throughout the modules on the professional development site.

 

Kindergarten Readiness Assessment App

There are 17 items available on the KRA App this year. Those items include mathematics and language/literacy items. The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment App PowerPoint will give you information about navigating and using the app. For additional support, see below for screencasts on using the app.

 

Please note that the voice over in the KRA App is a female voice. You will notice that what she says for each item matches verbatim what is in the print version of the scripts in the Teacher Administration Manual. All items in the KRA App are available in print format.

 

For information on downloading the KRA App, please see the Updates section of the professional development or the Ready for Kindergarten Online session in Module 1. The screencasts below are also included on the professional development site.
