State of the states policy snapshot: State early childhood assessment policies


This brief provides information about child assessments that states require of pre-K and Kindergarten providers. The brief is based on secondary analysis of data collected in the State of Preschool Yearbook and presents a snapshot of responses to questions about child assessment. The information is intended to help states learn from other states as they plan to implement new assessments (e.g. kindergarten entry assessments) and to implement comprehensive early childhood assessment systems.
