• The Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS) is an assessment given to all kindergarten students that provides a snapshot of where Washington's kindergartners are in their development early in the school year. These data help inform state and district-level decisions about education policy and investments, and classroom decisions about individualized learning. WaKIDS is legislatively mandated to be part of state-funded, full-day kindergarten.
