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 July 1 and September 21, 2020. All data must be submitted in ASQ Online by October 9, 2020. Each building’s existing ASQ Online Program Administrator can assign Provider log-in credentials to teachers and Program Administrator credentials to other administrators.

Visit www.agesandstages.com/ks/ for more FAQs, quick reference guides, and “how-to” videos. A 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.
