Minnesota KEA Plan

This page will provide updates of the Minnesota KEA plan.

As a part of the Race to the Top- Early Learning Challenge Grant (RTT-ELC), Minnesota is committed to evaluating the current statewide KEA, the School Readiness Study, and refining our system. To support this work, a Comprehensive Assessment Coordinator is being hired at MDE. One of the Assessment Cooridnator’s roles will be to oversee a Comprehensive Assessment System Task Force to be established fall 2012. The task force is charged to recommend a KEA that meets our vision to measure children’s outcomes not to just report on them, but to improve them.

For an outline of this plan, see the KEA section of RTT-ELC.
