What is GKIDS 2.0?
The Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (GKIDS) is one way to document and communicate your child's progress on the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) during his or her kindergarten year. GKIDS 2.0 is also one measure of a student's readiness for first grade.
How will GKIDS 2.0 impact my child?
GKIDS 2.0 is designed to be "invisible" to students, occurring through routine instruction and classroom activities. Results from GKIDS 2.0 will help identify what your child already knows, what your child needs next, and provides a way for teachers to monitor his or her growth in kindergarten.
What is the purpose of GKIDS 2.0?
The information gathered will help teachers plan instruction and will help families understand their child's strengths and areas for growth. With GKIDS 2.0, teachers will have information to share with families as they work together so children can find success in kindergarten and be prepared for first grade. All kindergarteners enrolled in a Georgia public school will be assessed using GKIDS 2.0.
