Assessment Early Learning Developmental Domain


Developmental domains related to early learning and used for assessing a child's kindergarten readiness.

Usage Notes

Used by states in reporting Kindergarten Entry Assessment (KEA) results as defined for some federal grant programs.

For each domain used by the state, the state would provide:
- The total number of children who participated in the KEA for each domain
- The number of children who participated in the KEA for each domain AND was at or above what the state defines as “ready” for kindergarten for that domain.

The counts may be calculated using unit-level data defined for Assessment Subtest (scoring method and what is being measured, e.g. the Domain), related Assessment Performance Levels (e.g. "Ready"), related to each student Assessment Result.
