Ohio’s Kindergarten Readiness Assessment

KRA-R


At the beginning of each school year, children in public and community school kindergarten programs are assessed using Ohio’s Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised. This assessment includes ways for teachers to measure a child’s readiness for engaging with instruction aligned to the kindergarten standards. 

Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards (birth to kindergarten entry) are the basis for the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised. The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised is used to assess four areas of early learning:

  • Social Foundations- including social and emotional development, and approaches toward learning
  • Mathematics 
  • Language and Literacy 
  • Physical Well-being and Motor Development

The administration window for the Kindergarten Reading Assessment Revised is not earlier than the first day of July of the school year and not later than the twentieth day of instruction of that school year.  The Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system will open on July 1 and remain open through November 1, 2022 to accommodate differences in district schedules. November 1st is the deadline for teachers to enter data in the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system. After the KReady system closes on November 1 at 11:59 p.m., data managers will have until November 9th at 11:59 p.m. to clean up transfer requests.
