Kindergarten Screener

Kindergarten Screening Score

The South Madison Community School Corporation kindergarten screening is a locally-developed assessment, based on a screener designed at Indiana University.  The screening is designed to assess students’ foundational learning skills.  The scores on the assessment are not a “percentage” or nationally “normed.”  Rather, the scores provide information regarding students’ early literacy, conceptual, and numeracy skills. 

Each section of the screening contains a set of skills.  Your child’s score is a compilation of the points.  It is not expected that students receive every point in every section.  It provides a general awareness of your child’s kindergarten readiness and areas you may reinforce at home.

Early Entrance Screening

The Early Entrance screening process includes two components:  Pre-KIDS and Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test, 3rd ed., NNAT3. (additional information)
