Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment (TX-KEA) Overview

The Texas Education Agency (TEA), in collaboration with The University of Texas Health Science Center’s Children’s Learning Institute (CLI) received a research award from the US Department of Education to develop the Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment System (TX-KEA).  The overall goal of the project was to develop a comprehensive assessment that can be reliably administered by kindergarten teachers and is a valid predictor of academic success. TX-KEA is an optional tool for schools to use to screen children’s school readiness upon their entry into kindergarten.

TX-KEA is free to all Texas public schools.

Important Session Information:

Join us for a FREE luncheon and introduction to the Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment (TX-KEA)! Housed on the CLI Engage platform, TX-KEA is a comprehensive and time-efficient kindergarten screener developed by child development and assessment experts at The University of Texas Health Science Center's Children's Learning Institute. TX-KEA's purpose is to determine whether students have met specified developmental benchmarks and academic competencies upon kindergarten entry as outlined by state guidelines. Because TX-KEA was developed with federal funds, districts can access the screener and its reporting features at no cost. Participants will also learn about the free Texas School Ready infant, toddler, and pre-k resources also available on the CLI Engage platform. Lunch is provided at no cost, compliments of Lakeshore Learning. All administrators, specialists, and teachers are welcome!
