Notes to Parents:* Do not expect that your child will know or should know all of the answers to this practiceworksheet. The overwhelming majority of children will not have mastered many of these skillsby the time they enter Kindergarten.* This worksheet helps children to practice skills that are often measured on standardizedtests or screens given by school districts before children start school. School districtsuse screening inventories for a variety of reasons (e.g. to determine Kindergarten "readiness";to place children in classes or groups based on ability; to develop class rosters ofchildren with equally diverse skill sets; to assess for early indicators of both "developmentaldelays" and "giftedness"; to determine whether summer school or Junior Kindergarten may benecessary, etc.). Standardized measures which include assessments of similar concepts tothose targeted on this worksheet include: DIAL-R (Developmental Indicators for theAssessment of Learning - Revised); Brigance (Brigance K&1 Screen); Daberon (DaberonScreening for School Readiness); KIDS (Missouri Kindergarten Inventory of DevelopmentalSkills); and many others.While it has been suggested that these instruments predict a student's academic potential,scientific studies have called into question whether or not that is actually true (EducationEvaluation & Policy Analysis, 1991, V.13 / 2, p. 159 - 175), so - DON'T WORRY!
