New Administration Window
The administration window for the Kindergarten Reading Assessment Revised is not earlier than the first day of July of the school year and not later than the twentieth day of instruction of that school year. The Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system opened on July 1 and will remain open through November 1, 2022 to accommodate differences in district schedules. November 1st is the deadline for teachers to enter data in the Ready for Kindergarten Online (KReady) system. After the KReady system closes on November 1 at 11:59 p.m., data managers will have until November 9th at 11:59 p.m. to clean up transfer requests.
There is a new process to register for KRA-R training starting this year. Teachers must complete self-paced online modules and a content assessment in KReady prior to registering in STARS for a virtual session. Directions are found on the KRA for Teachers Webpage under Teacher Training. Teachers should only register for one session in STARS. All participants are placed on the wait list in STARS until verification that they have completed the prework in KReady.
