Preschool Data Collection Timelines

FALL 2020 DATA COLLECTION

KEDS will be open for fall data collection Sept. 15 - Nov. 15. Districts are responsible for completing assessments on all required students.

If you are unable to conduct initial assessments during the fall window due to delayed school opening:
 

  1. List the enrollment status in KEDS as "Late Enrollee" for the fall data season

  2. Complete assessments when school begins for your district and ENTER THE INITIAL ASSESSMENTS IN THE WINTER DATA COLLECTION SEASON.

 

Then, all end of year assessments need to be entered during the spring data season. 

KEDS Online opens for a set period for data entry three times each year. Baseline, or entry, data should be collected the first season a student enrolls in the preschool program. Students are then assessed semi-annually until they exit the preschool program.
