High-Quality Early Childhood Assessment: Learning From States’ Use of Kindergarten Entry Assessments
This tool from the National Implementation Research Network helps teams discuss the feasibility and fit factors associated with the selection of potential programs and practices. The document provides a form to support team discussion and consideration of implementation site (i.e., capacity, fit, need) and program (i.e., evidence, usability, supports) indicators. The form has the benefit of promoting objective decision-making. The Hexagon Tool can serve as a complementary resource for teams engaged in the later stages of continuous improvement, prior to the selection of an intervention for implementation. This tool is appropriate to support planning activities at both the state and local level.
