I S P R O U T Early Learning Assessment
Indiana Student Performance Readiness and Observation of Understanding Tool (ISPROUT) is utilized to measure skills in children from infancy to kindergarten. ISPROUT is aligned to the Indiana Early Learning Foundations and includes:
- Social and Emotional Skills
- English/Language Arts
- Physical Development
- Social Studies
These concepts are reported in three categories: social/emotional, knowledge and skills, and independence/motor coordination. These are also the areas used for federal reporting for the Office of Special Education Programs.
ISPROUT is utilized for Indiana students receiving services as part of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to meet the reporting needs of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). Providers may also use the tool with other students to determine levels of mastery. The web or app based instrument is used by teachers to rate students based on observations of children engaged in daily activities.
