Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) 

Securely Destroy KRA Field Test Materials

Thank you for your participation in the Ohio Kindergarten Readiness Assessment 2017 Embedded Field Test. We appreciate your expertise and support for creating improved and sustainable versions of the KRA. At the end of the fall 2017 Embedded Field Test, each teacher must account for all test materials and follow procedures for ensuring the destruction of all documentation, notes, manipulatives, booklets, manuals, etc.
 
Because the materials for each designated field test form were distributed to individual schools, please complete this KRA Field Test Destruction From for each school assigned to a field test form. Determine the best way to do this locally; one person per school can complete the form, or one person per district can complete the form. 

Securely store KRA kits

Please ensure your current KRA administration materials are securely stored. We will notify you in spring/summer of 2018 on the procedure for securely destroying these kits and replacing them with new kits as necessary. Please do not destroy your current KRA administration materials.
