Time for Readiness Testing

krt_srt_blog_2014As spring approaches, make sure your pre-K and kindergarten students are ready for their next steps. Use STS’ Kindergarten Readiness Test (KRT) and School Readiness Test (SRT) to assess whether they’ve acquired the underlying reading and math skills that they need.  Testing can be done individually or in small groups and the scoring materials provide group and individual results. Both tests were designed for use at the end of the school year.

The KRT and SRT are newly revised so that test materials align with the standards being used in most classrooms. Once testing is complete, we offer a KRT and SRT Parent/Teacher Report.  This is a convenient, easy- to-read, snapshot of student competencies so that parents know exactly what their students’ strengths and weaknesses are.
