The Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) is a new assessment instrument developed by the State of Illinois. The KIDS tool is designed to help teachers observe, document, and reflect on the learning, development, and progress of all students during their kindergarten year. During the 2016-2017 school year, kindergarten teachers and administrators will continue to train on the KIDS assessment. The full implementation of KIDS is currently expected to begin in the 2017-2018 school year.
