Story Behind the Curve

The Fall KEI information has no reflection on the public school system, and instead shows areas that need improvement in the early childhood years.

The Kindergarten Entrance Inventory is an assessment done by the Kindergarten teachers in the fall. The assessment is subjective, and measures six areas: Creative/Aesthetic, Personal/Social, Physical/Motor, Language, Literacy, and Numeracy.

Students get a rating of 1-3 in each area, based on whether they are demonstrating emerging skills, inconsistently demonstrating skills, or consistently demonstrating skills
