Early Admission to First Grade: Readiness Evaluation Procedure.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
This booklet describes procedures that are used in screening children for early admission to first grade. Generally, each child should be evaluated on an individual basis. When individual evaluation is not feasible as a first step, it is required that an initial group screening measure be administered and followed by individual evaluations for those children demonstrating their readiness for additional evaluation and screening. Initially, a statewide admission form, a medical form, and a standardized group screening measure or a criterion-referenced or performance-based test are required. Further evaluation, if appropriate, involves the assessment of academic potential, physical development, and social-emotional and general behavior development. Parent conferences are also scheduled. Requirements and evaluation techniques are listed for each evaluation area. The appendixes contain sample applications, medical forms, parent letters, parent-school conferences guidelines, and questionnaires to be completed by parent and kindergarten teachers. These forms are presented in both Spanish and English. (SDH)
