This document provides a compilation of measures of progress toward school readiness and three contributing conditions as used in several local, state, and national surveys. The report begins with a legend listing the surveys examined, their acronyms, and contact information. The remainder of the report, in tabular format, lists measures of progress at school entry related to the areas of physical well-being and motor development, social and emotional development, language development, cognitive development, and disposition to learn. Each measures use in a national, state, or local survey is noted. Also presented in tabular format is the use of progress measures related to three conditions contributing to school readiness: (1) healthy physical development, including healthy wanted birth, development on track, and no preventable disease or injury; (2) supportive social and cognitive environments, including strong bonds with primary caregiver, home environment quality, child care quality, family economic security, and family connections to supportive networks; and (3) safe physical environment, including neighborhood quality, safe healthy public space, and absence of abuse, neglect, and exposure to violence.
