Introduction to the Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment


The Texas Kindergarten Entry Assessment System (TX-KEA) is the result of a collaborative effort between the US Department of Education, the Texas Education Agency, and the Children’s Learning Institute at UTHealth to develop and validate a school readiness screener that can be reliably administered by kindergarten teachers in Texas. It covers multiple child development domains and better informs kindergarten teachers about the children in their classes, helping them to design more appropriate learning opportunities. TX-KEA launched on CLI Engage in 2017, and has been expanded to include multiple waves of progress monitoring and statewide required screening.

TX-KEA is available as a one-time kindergarten entry screener (BOY), as a one time literacy screener (BOY), or as a three-wave progress monitoring tool for kindergarten that includes dyslexia direct screening and referral checklist (EOY). TX-KEA measures are available in English and Spanish and the TX-KEA reports include parent reports, parent feedback forms, class-level reports, individual student reports that include student percentile rankings, and a small grouping tool that provides links to the CIRCLE Activity Collection.
