Designed for professionals and parents concerned with the question, “Is this child ready to begin school?”, the Kindergarten Readiness Test-2 (KRT-2) is an assessment tool developed to measure a child’s performance on various developmental tasks. The KRT-2 provides a summary of critical areas of developmental tests into one single form, making identification of school readiness more efficient and valid.

 Using modern child development theories and test design, the KRT-2 is sensitive to current state and federal laws regulating school readiness. Each Test Booklet has additional forms to help enhance parent conferences, graphically depict a child’s strength and weaknesses, and identify possible disbility conditions at an early age. Along with these capabilities, the KRT-2 also facilitates developmental writing objective programs for teachers or parents. Within the Test Booklet, tasks are presented in a sequential developmental-maturational format.

The KRT-2 is intended to be used by early education teachers and other professionals who work with children, to assess levels of maturity and development of typical later-four, five, and six year old children who are entering kindergarten classes. Its primary purpose is to provide additional information to help parents, teachers, and educational specialists to determine if a child is developmentally or maturationally ready to begin kindergarten in any given school year.

Five General Assessed Skills:

  • Understanding, Awareness, and Interactions with one’s environment.

  • Numerical Awareness
  • Visual and Fine-Motor Coordination
  • Auditory Attention Span and Concentration
