The Utah State Board of Education changed the Kindergarten Entry and Exit Profile (KEEP) assessment from an optional assessment to a statewide uniform assessment to be implemented in Fall of 2017. See Board Rule R277-489 here.

The KEEP is intended to measure the early literacy and early math skills of kindergarten students at the beginning and end of their kindergarten school year.

The administration of the KEEP Entry takes approximately 15-20 minutes to administer one-on-one and the KEEP Exit approximately 35-45 minutes to administer.
