The KRA, which resulted from the collaboration of several states, West-Ed, and Johns Hopkins Center for Technology in Education was developed as a Kindergarten entry assessment as part of the R4K Comprehensive Assessment System. For students entering Kindergarten, it is administered during a window that begins the first day of school and ends October 10th. In 2014 and 2015 it was administered as a census administration to all Kindergarteners. Because of legislation passed in 2016, school districts can choose to administer the KRA to a random sample of students in each Kindergarten classroom or as a census administration to all of their Kindergarten students.
The assessment kit includes the Guidelines for Allowable Supports and a Quick Guide for Supporting English Learners and a Quick Guide for Supporting Student with Disabilities.
