Statewide Readiness Data 2019

Maryland's Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) is a developmentally appropriate observational and assessment tool administered to kindergarteners in the fall of each year that measures school readiness in four domains. Overall readiness levels, as well scale scores in each domain and by specific subgroups, are reported statewide and for each of  Maryland's 24 jurisdictions.

Maryland's 2018-2019 KRA Data Show: 

  • 47% of Maryland kindergarteners demonstrate readiness, up from 45% in 2017-2018.
  • A significant number of Maryland's children (20%) display minimal foundational skills and behaviors and require substantial assistance and differentiated instruction, as well as targeted supports or interventions to be successful in kindergarten.

TAKE ACTION

Everyone must take proactive measures to improve kindergarten readiness. Kindergarten teachers and school administrators should begin addressing the gaps in readiness that some children already demonstrate.
