PreKindergarten Through Third Grade


Students in grades prekindergarten to third are given screening assessments to determine students’ readiness for kindergarten and help identify which students are not learning what they need to meet grade level norms, and may need additional investigation to identify next steps for support.

K–3 Assessments include:

  • Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP-K)
  • GOLD©
  • K-3 Literacy Screening Assessment (District selected; LDOE approved)
