Students entering kindergarten ready to learn

This indicator shows the percentage of students who enter Kindergarten ready to learn. Readiness to learn in the first year of school is strongly linked to later school success, which is predictive of adult health. Full readiness to learn is defined as consistently demonstrating skills, knowledge, and behaviors which are needed to successfully engage in kindergarten curriculum

    Up to 2014, MSDE administered a tool, "Maryland Model for School Readiness (MMSR)". After 2014, MSDE replaced this tool with, "New Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (NKRA)." Data cannot be compared between tools. Data from the MMSR tool (2010-2013) are not displayed. Data from the NKRA tool are displayed (2014- present).

    For new tools, it is recommended that baseline data first be gathered before determining a goal. As such, this measure currently has not set a goal.
