A state scan of early learning assessments and data systems


Early learning assessments are a critical source of information. Educators can use assessment data to tailor instruction, families to better understand their children’s development, and state and local leaders to make policy and resource allocation decisions. We interviewed 53 state partners to gather information about their assessment and data practices. The information highlighted in this overview is not exhaustive or necessarily meant to serve as an exemplar, but rather is meant to provide examples of work states are doing in a few fundamental areas related to pre-k assessments and data systems.
