Early Learning Update May 2, 2023

Early Learning Assessment

Dear Early Learning Assessment Administrators and Data Managers,

We sincerely apologize for the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system downtime during the spring administration window. Due to an issue that occurred during necessary system maintenance, the system experienced downtime from April 21 through April 30. We apologize that teachers were unable to enter any assessment data during that time and data managers, administrators and teachers were not able to generate any reports. Because of this inconvenience, we have extended the data collection through May 22.

Spring Early Learning Assessment Data Collection and Reporting
The KReady system will remain open for entering ELA spring data through May 22 at 11:59 PM. Teachers will not be able to enter assessment data after this time.

Data Managers will be able to approve transfers and clean up the student demographic data through May 24 at 11:59 PM. The final spring data collection Learning Progression Score Report for reporting scores in EMIS or EAS will be available for Data Managers to generate starting May 25.

Archiving Reports
Data Managers and Building Administrators are encouraged to download available reports from KReady and save them locally by June 16. No user can generate a report from a previous year. Reports that have been generated this school year by data managers and administrators will be archived in the system and will be available at the user level next school year. Reports generated by teachers will not be available after June 16. For additional information, visit Accessing the Archive on Ohio K-12 Help.

Preparing for School Year 2023-2024
The KReady system will open for the next school year on July 1. The fall 2023 Early Learning Assessment data collection will open on August 15.

Many programs have been inquiring about the assessment requirements for next school year and the alignment of the ELA to the new Early Learning and Development Standards. More information will be coming to you soon and published on our Early Learning Assessment Website.
