The purpose of the K-3 Formative Assessment Consortium was to support states to implement a formative  assessment in early elementary grades (Kindergarten through third grade). Child Trends provided research support, particularly around the use of implementation science to implement the assessment statewide for states in the Consortium. We also provided technical assistance to states for more targeted support during implementation.
