Kindergarten readiness by region
Percent of children entering kindergarten who consistently demonstrated all thirteen goals or most of the goals (11 or 12) that define kindergarten readiness.
The Alaska Developmental Profile is an observational tool administered by teachers to all kindergarten students at the beginning of the school year. Although first-grade students who were not assigned ratings in kindergarten are also rated, the percentages in this report include kindergarten students only. Teachers are encouraged to complete a profile for each student during the first four weeks of the school year. Teachers provide a rating for each student in 13 goals within five domains (physical health and well-being, social emotional development, approaches to learning, cognition and general knowledge, and communication language and literacy). A student "consistently demonstrates" a goal if they are generally able to demonstrate the indicative skills and behaviors of the goal 80 percent or more of the time.
