Kindergarten Early Assessment (KEA)

The KEA measures a student’s learning readiness and helps teachers and families gain an ongoing understanding of the strengths and needs of each student as early in the education experience as possible. The goal of the assessment is to help ensure that each student reaches their greatest potential.

KEA At A Glance

The information gathered from the KEA during the first 60 days of kindergarten creates a snapshot of each student’s learning development in key areas, enabling future instruction to be tailored to each student’s specific needs. 

Length of assessment: Varies. Educators collect data through student observation and during normal classroom activities.

Required by: State and district (Kindergarten readiness).

Visit the Colorado Department of Education’s School Readiness site for more information.
