The Developmental Tasks for Kindergarten Readiness-II (DTKR-II) provides objective data on a child’s skills and abilities as they relate to successful performance in kindergarten. It is used for both screening and diagnostic-prescriptive purposes. The results can be used by school personnel to plan remedial instructional programmes and/or to make adjustments in the kindergarten curriculum when the child enters school. Raw scores are converted to standard scores. A composite quotient and factor scores are also available.

The DTKR-II is a restandardised, updated version of the DTKR. New to the second edition are scaled scores (mean of 10, standard deviation of 3) for subtests and three factors, and a composite score with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. The DTKR-II was normed on 2,521 pre kindergarten children (1,273 males and 1,248 females). Reliability was determined using internal consistency, interrater agreement, and test-retest reliability. Test-retest reliability ranges from .82 to .97. The composite score reliability is .93. Predictive validity data are available in the manual. The DTKR-II can be individually administered in about 20 to 30 minutes.
