Assessment Periods

For VPK providers operating a 540 hour school-year program (e.g., August-April/May), the three assessment times, or assessment periods for the administration of the VPK Assessment are as follows: (*required)

  • Assessment Period 1 – the month of September*
  • Assessment Period 2 – the month of January
  • Assessment Period 3 – the month of April/May (end of program year)*

The Department of Education recommends administering the VPK Assessment items for AP1 and AP3 in semester/summer programs. It has not been our practice to assign dates for the semester/summer administration of the VPK Assessment, but AP1 is usually given at the beginning and AP3 is usually given at the end of the program.
