This report of the Kindergarten Readiness Stakeholder Committee, a work group whose leadership included Erikson president Samuel J. Meisels and Herr Research Center director Jana Fleming, designed a process that could provide schools and educational leaders with age-appropriate information about children’s developing knowledge and skills.

The Illinois Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) will help identify gaps in school readiness and guide classroom instruction, providing information to schools, districts and the state to support decision-making about resource allocations.
