As the school year wraps up, there is still plenty of time to administer the Kindergarten Readiness Test (KRT) for those leaving preschool and entering kindergarten next year. The purpose of the KRT is to determine the extent to which each of the underlying competencies in reading, mathematics and language have been developed so that instruction can be modified to meet the needs of each student. The 8 subtests may be given in 45 minutes. Scores and skill ratings for each individual subtest are measured along with an overall readiness score and rating.
For those leaving kindergarten and entering first grade in the fall, the School Readiness Test (SRT) is available for administration. The purpose of the SRT is to allow teachers to learn as much as possible about each entering student’s ability and about any factors that might interfere with his or her learning. The eleven subtests, with an optional handwriting assessment may be given in 1 hour and 35 minutes. Scores and skill ratings for each individual subtest are measured along with an overall readiness score and rating. The overall readiness score is also related to a national percentile and stanine.
