The Tennessee Department of Education, in collaboration with the WestEd Center for Child & Family Studies, is implementing Kindergarten Entry Inventory (KEI). This online platform is designed to allow teachers, program administrators, and other designated staff to access KEI observation tool and review data. This is also the platform where teachers will enter observation data for each student. This platform stores the data entered by teachers in a secure database and automatically produces a variety of reports, both for individual children and for groups of children.

Tennessee teachers are only required to complete the five domains (versus the 11 domains listed on the platform). Even though teachers will see other domains listed, teachers should only complete the following domains:

  1. Approaches to Learning – Self-Regulation
  2. Social and Personal Competency
  3. Language and Literacy Development
  4. Cognition: Math
  5. Physical Development

Please note: Tennessee teachers may complete the English-Language Development (ELD) domain. This is an optional domain to complete for English learners. Click here for the TN KEI ELD measures.

Tennessee teachers do not need to complete the following domains: Cognition:Science, Health, Visual and Performing Arts, and History Social-Science.

This Review Ratings report shows which KEI measures have been rated for an individual child so far during the current observation and assessment. Measure names appear down the left side, in the same order as in the KEI. Developmental level names appear across the top. A (☀) symbol indicates the developmental level rated for the measure.

A (☀▶) symbol indicates that the level was rated and that the box for "Child is emerging to the next level" was also marked. A row with no symbol means the child has not yet been assessed for that measure or that Unable to rate was marked.

This is for administrators to use to view if teachers have completed the assessment. When five required domains are completed, the report will show as 75% completed. If five domains + ELD domain is completed, the report will show as 82% completed.
