Product Details
Students entering kindergarten are generally presumed ready to begin formal instruction in the development of reading, mathematics, and language skills. However, at this age students vary considerably in terms of development of underlying competencies, which are essential for such early school learning. The fundamental purpose of the KRT is to determine the extent to which each of the underlying competencies has been developed so that instruction can be modified to meet the needs of each student.

The KRT has 8 subtests, and should be administered to individual students or small groups (no more than 3).
1. Letter Recognition
