(August – October)
A statewide assessment initiated in the fall of 2017, the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) is administered during the first part of the school year to all students enrolled in publicly funded kindergartens. The KRA measures a child’s school readiness across four domains: Social Foundations, Language/Literacy, Mathematics, and Physical Well-Being. It provides a snapshot of students’ abilities at the beginning of the school year. For more information, visit the South Carolina Department of Education.
