Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment (TX-KEA)

The Children's Learning Institute at UT Health, in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency, received an award from the US Department of Education to develop the Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment (TX-KEA). This assessment is being designed for use by educators to screen children’s school readiness upon their entry into kindergarten. TX-KEA will help schools determine whether students have mastered developmental benchmarks, as described in the Texas PreK Guidelines and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). This point-in-time snapshot of each student’s competencies will inform instruction and identify whether additional diagnostic assessment is needed.
Important Session Information:

The TX-KEA learning areas include: Vocabulary, Listening comprehension, Letter knowledge, Phonological awareness, Early writing, Mathematics, Science and engineering, Gross and fine motor, Social competence, Self-regulation, and Emotion understanding. This assessment is completed one time a year at the beginning of each school year. It is approved for the TEA Commissioner's List of Reading Assessments. You will need to make sure your campus and teachers have an account established with TX-KEA. Please contact Jennifer Lindley at to create accounts. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Joni Lemley at Region 9 ESC at or call Joni at 940-322-6928.
