Welcome to Desired Results Developmental Profile - School Readiness Online

The California Department of Education (CDE), in collaboration with the WestEd Center for Child and Family Studies and UC Berkeley–BEAR Center, created the Desired Results Developmental Profile–School Readiness (DRDP-SR©) assessment instrument to provide transitional and traditional kindergarten teachers with a valid, reliable measurement tool that will assist them to observe, document and reflect on the learning, development and progress of their students.

This developmentally appropriate and aligned school readiness assessment can provide useful information to teachers and administrators in order to better address children’s learning and developmental needs over time. It ultimately is a strategy to close the readiness gap and ensure all children thrive in their earliest years.

  • Welcome to this online course for the Desired Results Developmental Profile--Kindergarten DRDP-K (2015), a developmental continuum for Kindergarten.  The DRDP-K (2015) is an assessment instrument designed for teachers to use to observe, document, and reflect on the learning, development, and progress of all children during the transitional kindergarten and kindergarten year.

    After completing the first three modules, you will understand:

    •            The components of the DRDP-K (2015) assessment instrument

    •            How to observe and document children's development

    •            How to reflect on gathered documentation to rate the DRDP-K (2015) measures

    A certificate of completion for four professional development hours is available after successfully completing the first three modules.

    Each module ends with a short quiz to see if you understood the main ideas of the module. A score of at least 80% is needed to move on to the next module. You can review the materials and retake the quiz as often as you like.

    Although we don't anticipate any problems, staff members are standing by to assist you should you need help.
