Pre-Kindergarten Assessment
Liberty Source has been successfully helping pre-kindergarten teachers assess and instruct their students.  We offer several different types of assessments - from one-on-one observational assessments to independent student assessments, or a hybrid of part independent and part teacher-led. Teachers can find the best way to assess their students and use the powerful Tango reports to group their students, find activities to reinforce skills, and re-assess the students.

Assessment Solutions for Pre-Kindergarten

LION/LEON for PK

The Learning Inventory of Need (LION) and the Spanish version, Lecciones de Evaluación basado en Objectivos y Necesidades (LEON) pre-kindergarten assessment covers the major early literacy domains.
