KIDS (Kindergarten Individual Development Survey)

The Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) is a new state-mandated observational tool that Kindergarten teachers in IL use to assesses students’ skills in four key domains that are important for student success: Approaches to Learning and Self-Regulation, Social and Emotional Development, Language and Literacy Development, and Cognition: Math.

How does KIDS work?  Teachers observe students during the school day as they participate in their regular lessons and activities.  Teachers then use these observations to determine where a student’s skills are on a developmental continuum.  Teachers will use KIDS once during the fall and once in the spring.     
 
More information regarding KIDS can be found on the ISBE KIDS website, including a KIDS Overview (in English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, and other languages), a KIDS Introduction Video (in English and Spanish), and At-Home Family Activities.
