Appendix C: School readiness assessment tools

The following serves as a comprehensive, although not exhaustive, list of school readiness assessment tools created by commercial vendors or consortia of state agencies. The list does not include assessment tools self-developed by a single state or jurisdiction.  

For additional information on screening tools, please refer to The Compendium of Screening Measures for Young Children. The compendium, developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is a collection of research-based screening tools for children under the age of five. Practitioners in early care and education, primary healthcare, child welfare, and mental health can use this reference to learn cost, administration time, quality level, training required, and age range covered for each screening tool.
