Latest ECEAP outcomes report recently announced


January 26, 2017

Children enrolled in ECEAP are assessed three times during the school year to track their social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development and their early literacy and math skills. English language acquisition is tracked for children who speak a different language at home.

Washington State relies on the Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS) for kindergarten readiness data. WaKIDS is a process for:

-Welcoming students and their families to kindergarten.

-Assessing students' strengths.

-Discussing the characteristics of children's development and learning what will enable them to be successful in school.

In the 2015-16 school year, WaKIDS reached approximately 59,000 kindergartners and determined their skill set development in the six areas.

The report shows that few children start their Pre-K year in ECEAP with kindergarten entry skills, at the end of one year of ECEAP, the percentage of ECEAP children with kindergarten entry skills exceeds the rate for all WaKIDS children and for low-income WaKIDS children. For the 124 children with two years of ECEAP, the results are remarkably higher.
