2013-14 Early Childhood Success in School Forms and Documents
Thanks to your hard work over the past two years, the KELI-4 has been finalized, statistically reviewed and now has fewer items. The Classroom Practices has also been revised to better reflect the research-based practices that are used within the MTSS framework. There are other changes: (1) The Home Practices survey used in previous years has been divided into two surveys: Family Survey and Protective Factors Survey; and (2) the Transition Survey which is new and has 15 questions that will help describe transition practices that are typically used in your programs.
The Process documents have been developed to help teachers and administrators complete the data entry as quickly and as accurately as possible. Please remember:
- Lead teachers must be the 'completers' of the KELI-4, the Classroom Practices, and the Transition survey. Anyone may enter the data once the items have been completed. That is a local decision.
- The observation forms can be used to collect the information on the 10 selected children before the data entry window opens. The items are to be reported based upon the children's skill levels at the beginning of the year for the fall data collection.
- TEACHERS MAY USE INFORMATION GATHERED FOR OTHER VALID ASSESSMENTS TO COMPLETE THE KELI-4. This data collection does not require separate 'assessment' activities.
- Parents do NOT have to complete the Family Survey or the Protective Factors survey. Teachers should print off paper copies and either send home or provide at a face-to-face conference. Parents may choose to complete all, some, or none of the items on either of the surveys. Teachers will collect what families complete and enter the data into the Early Childhood Success in School application.
- See the EC-SIS Timelines for data collections document for data entry windows and other data collection timeframes.

Provides the windows for data entry plus a timeframe for the different survey completion requirements
Frequency Descriptions (PDF)
To be used with the KELI-4 and provides the definition of the frequency responses for each item
KELI-4 Clarifications (PDF)
A description of the definition of each item on the KELI-4 to help with fidelity of implementation and consistency across teachers/programs
KELI-4 Observation Form (PDF)
TO be used in FALL data collection by teachers who have randomly selected 10 children. This form will allow teachers to list results on all items for all 10 children on one form. This form can then be used to complete the KELI-4 data entry through the authenticated application.

KELI-4 Observation Form SPRING (PDF)
This is the same from that was used in the Fall, but with the additional question around 'school readiness'. Teachers may use this form to list the responses for the same 10 children which were observed for the fall data collection.
Random Numbers Table (PDF)
This table is used by the lead teacher to randomly select 10 children from their classroom for observation. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE INCLUDED ON THE CLASS LIST(not just the at risk children) so the selection will be random across the entire class population.
