Basically, the KRA-L (Kindergarten Readiness Assessment - Literacy) consists of:
Answering who, what, when, why and how questions;
Identifying words that rhyme;
Giving a word that sounds the same as another word (rhyming
Identifying letters; and
Listening and identifying the beginning sounds of words.
My state (Ohio) has detailed information about the test here:http://education.ohio.gov/GD/Templat...&Content=69005
About half-way down that page is a link to a PDF file that is the Family Guide to the KRA-L. It has a lot of good information about what the test consists of, how it is done, and what the results mean.
I hope that helps!
