Kindergarten Assessment

Overview

The Oregon Kindergarten Assessment is composed of the following three measures: Early Literacy, Early Math, and Approaches to Learning. The assessment is designed to focus on domains that are strongly linked to third grade reading and future academic success as well as to align with current assessment practices in Oregon’s Kindergarten and elementary schools. The information provides a snapshot for communities and schools on the skills that students have when they enter Kindergarten.
