Kindergarten Readiness Snapshot Tool

To advance kindergarten readiness, all Kansas kindergarten classrooms are utilizing a new tool to better understand students’ development. The Ages & Stages Questionnaires provide a snapshot of children’s developmental milestones. As caregivers know their children best, they complete both versions of the questionnaires. This data won’t be used to keep a child from entering kindergarten. Instead, it will help teachers build strong relationships with parents and ensure classrooms are ready to best serve incoming kindergarteners.

All kindergarten classrooms are required to administer the ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 between August 1 and September 20, 2019. KSDE is in the process of contacting districts to confirm Program Administrators credentials for each building. Program Administrators are users who are able to assign Provider log-in credentials to teachers. After logging into the system, Program Administrators can then assign log-in credentials to the appropriate teachers so they can enter data as Providers.

Visit www.agesandstages.com/ks/ for more FAQs, quick reference guides, and “how-to” videos. A new fact sheet, which includes tips for sharing ASQ results with parents, is available online. Additional resources regarding the ASQ are available at www.agesandstages.com.
