Early Years Evaluation

The Early Years Evaluation (EYE) is a universal assessment tool to assess children’s early development. It is a reliable indicator to help determine which children are likely to benefit from early interventions which will improve their chance for success at school.

The Early Years Evaluation Direct Assessment (EYE-DA) is administered to all children before they enter kindergarten as a universal screen for possible academic or developmental delays. It takes about 30 minutes per student and is carried out in early spring by trained administrators from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Results of the EYE-DA are shared with the child’s parent before they enter kindergarten.
