Districts are responsible for completing the following tasks:

    First, districts need to complete the KEDS Spring 2020 Assessment Survey to let us know the status of their assessment data and whether or not they are providing NTI instruction to their preschool students, so that information can be included in the reports to OSEP. If you have not yet completed the survey, please do so asap. Surveys must be completed by April 15th. If you did not receive the email with the survey link, please contact us and let us know. We will make sure to get you a copy.


    Second, districts need to update and verify the student demographic data in KEDS. For students that were unable to be assessed prior to school closure, you may enter “01/01/2001” in the assessment date field. This will let us know that an assessment was not completed. Verification must be completed by May 31st.


    Third, districts need to enter all completed assessment data in KEDS or a publisher’s online assessment system. Please note that every assessment record in a publisher online assessment system must include a unique 10-digit State Student Identifier (SSID) number or data are incomplete! Assessment data must be entered by May 31st. 

Please contact the KEDS team at with any questions you have!
