Ohio's Early Learning Assessment
Ohio, in partnership with Maryland, has developed an assessment for preschool-aged children called the Early Learning Assessment. The Early Learning Assessment is a part of Ohio's Ready for Kindergarten Assessment System, a joint project of Ohio's Department of Education and Department of Job and Family Services.
The assessment is designed to aid teachers in determining where children are in their readiness for kindergarten. The Early Learning Assessment will provide information for teachers about children from early preschool to kindergarten.
All programs who serve preschool-age children will have the opportunity to use the Early Learning Assessment to improve and support the growth and development of children.
Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards (birth to kindergarten entry) are the basis for the Early Learning Assessment. The assessment focuses on seven areas of a child’s growth and development:
- Social Foundations (including social and emotional development, and approaches toward learning)
- Social Studies
- Language and Literacy
- Physical Well-being and Motor Development
- Fine Arts
