All prekindergarten students (3 year olds, 4 year olds, PPCD/PALS) are required to participate in the PK assessment administration unless specified by the ARD or IAT committee. The assessment is administered to individual students by the classroom teacher three times within the academic year.
To accommodate administration and ensure time for daily instruction, three week assessment windows have been defined for the Beginning of the Year (BOY), Middle of the Year (MOY), and End of the Year (EOY).
The EOY Subtest Calendar is a suggested schedule to help teachers pace themselves throughout the assessment window. Click HERE to access.
