The KESA supports early identification and intervention for children who are at-risk for kindergarten retention and special education referral. It works well as a global screener, and can provide a snapshot of the range of skills and challenges in a class, or for children who are known to be at risk.
The KESA can be used in the last year of preschool, or at the start of kindergarten. It covers the major factors identified as predictive of school success:
*Ability to Comprehend and Follow Oral Directions
*Visual Memory and Visual Attention
Skills in all five student readiness domains, as identified by the National School Readiness Indicators Initiative, are assessed. It complements curriculum-based and observational measures, and can be used as an RTI Tier 1 universal screener. It is a norm-referenced assessment. The raw score is quickly converted to one overall standard score, and percentile rank.
The KESA Kit includes 25 each of the Record Forms and Examinee Workbooks, a Manual, Test Plates, Timer, Transparency, 8 Building Blocks, 1” Masking Tape, 8 -Crayon Box, in a Messenger Bag.
