Data Manager Training Early Learning Assessment Closedown – Tuesday May 3, 2022 (10:00am – 11:00am)
This webinar is for data managers and administrators responsible for submitting Spring 2022 Early Learning Assessment (ELA) scores and data reporting to EMIS and EAS. This session will provide participants with information for accessing reports, managing transfers, and the necessary steps during the data cleanup window. Register here.
Spring Early Learning Assessment Data Collection and Reporting
The ELA spring data collection closes on 05/14/2022 at 11:59 PM. Teachers will not be able to enter assessment data after this time. Data Managers will be able to approve transfers and clean up the student demographic data through 05/20/2022 at 11:59 PM. Please use the Learning Progression Score Report generated from the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system which will be available for download starting 05/27/2022 for the spring data collection for reporting scores in EMIS or EAS.
Programs are encourage to utilize the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system for data collection. Data managers will need to use the spring enrollment token to enroll preschool students in the spring assessment window for teachers to enter ratings. The data token can be found on the Ohio K12 Help Data Manager Webpage. If your program is not able to enter scores into the KReady system you may use the Early Learning Assessment Bridge Form for reporting.
Data Managers and Building Administrators are encouraged to download available reports from KReady and save them locally by June 17. No user can generate a report from a previous year. Reports that have been generated this year by data managers and administrators will be archived in the system and will be available at the user level next school year. Reports generated by teachers will not be available after June 17. For additional information, visit Accessing the Archive on Ohio K-12 Help.
Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) System Update
The Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system will have intermittent downtime for server updates and annual data archive from June 18 – 30. Data managers, administrators and teachers will not be able to generate any reports for either the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Revised (KRA-R) or the Early Learning Assessment (ELA) during that time. The KReady system will open for the next school year on July 1.
The fall 2023 Early Learning Assessment data collection will open on August 15.
