Texas Kindergarten Entry and Progress Monitoring Assessments

All state funded kindergarten classrooms will need to assess entering students' readiness levels within the first 6 - 8 weeks of school. You have several options on the Commissioner's List. An important factor to consider is that you will also need to progress monitor kindergarten students' literacy levels. You can, however, choose one from the list that will do both. CLI offers TX-KEA (free) as an entry exam, however, it is not a progress monitoring tool. Some districts are choosing to use a literacy progress monitoring tool and also administer the non-literacy components of the TX-KEA. The data from your entry exam and progress monitoring tool will be reported on the end of year ECDS.
