School Readiness Assessment Tool for California
Developmentally appropriate and aligned, the Desired Results Developmental Profile–School Readiness (DRDP-SR©) assessment instrument provides useful information to teachers and administrators in order to better address children’s learning and developmental needs over time. It ultimately is an essential strategy to close the readiness gap and ensure all children thrive in their earliest years.
The California Department of Education (CDE), in collaboration with the WestEd Center for Child and Family Studies and UC Berkeley–BEAR Center, developed the Desired Results Developmental Profile–School Readiness (DRDP-SR) assessment instrument. The primary purpose of the DRDP-SR is to provide transitional and traditional kindergarten teachers with a valid, reliable measurement tool that will assist them to observe, document and reflect on the learning, development and progress of their students.
