VKRP State Reports

The VKRP Phase 2 Executive Summary and Legislative Report describes the results of a study conducted by UVA CASTL that piloted a kindergarten entry assessment tool that included PALS and provided a snapshot of Virginia's students entering kindergarten with regard to readiness skills across a comprehensive range of learning domains, which clearly defined the school readiness skills gap in Virginia. The phase 2 pilot study, using a sample of students who were representative of the Commonwealth, indicated that 34% of children arrive at kindergarten unprepared in, at least, one critical learning domain (literacy, mathematics, self-regulation, and social skills).
