Most states are focusing on developing, revising, piloting, implementing, or creating policy and practice guidelines for kindergarten assessment – under the labels of: Kindergarten readiness assessment, Kindergarten inventory, entry assessment and others. As state leaders are moving forward, they have become interested in ensuring that the tools and materials they adopt are understood and used with fidelity and integrity. NCC is working with New Hampshire on developing a communication plan and key understandings for ensuring a cohesive and developmentally appropriate vision going forward. That work has gained some momentum in at least one other state in the region. Be sure the check back to learn more as the work develops. In the meantime, take a look at CEELO’s Fast Facts on KEA rebranding to see how states across the country are approaching kindergarten assessments: http://ceelo.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/ceelo_fast_fact_kea_branding.pdf
