Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised Updates – Feb 5, 2024

Dear Kindergarten Assessment Data Managers and Administrators,

Thank you for your continued efforts to support teaching and learning in kindergarten. Here are some important updates about the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised: 

KRA-R Reports
We sincerely apologize for the issues and delays with the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised Scale Score Reports. The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised (KRA-R) Scale Score Reports and Individual Student Reports (ISR) are available now to data managers and teachers in the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system. If you generated a KRA Scale Score Report prior to January 20, 2024, please do not use those files. Generate a new file to download and share with local EMIS coordinators.

Reports for district and school administrators and data displays are also available within the KReady system. Please note that the reports are large files and may show in “queuing” status for up to 24 hours after they are requested. You can find more information on how to run a Scale Score Report in the KRA Data Manager User Manual.

The Scale Score Report includes all students in your district with each individual item score, KRA overall scores, and domain scores. The Scale Score Report can be downloaded from the KReady system and used for EMIS reporting. The KRA Scale Score Report Definition of Fields document outlines and describes each of the data fields in the report. The EMIS Reporting window will be extended.

Incomplete/Invalid Assessments
For students who have incomplete assessments (missing one or more item scores) or invalid assessments (one or more items marked Not Scorable for students without disabilities or who are not English Learners), the affected scale scores will be blank on the Scale Score Report. These rows should be reviewed prior to EMIS submission to confirm that they are invalid. If a data error has occurred and the item scores are available or the student demographics for ELL or IEP status were not accurately reported in KReady, please contact KRAHelp@childrenandyouth.ohio.gov for assistance. These students will have an overall scale score on the Individual Student Report and one of these messages: Some items were not complete or Complete with NS. These reports should be used with caution. An Individual Student Report with the Complete with NS message is valid only for a student who is identified as an English Learner or who has an IEP.
