School readiness, an essential developmental component, can be assessed using The Lollipop Test Specimen Set. A Diagnostic Screening Test of School Readiness has been developed by Alex L. Chew, Ed.D. 

The Lollipop Test Specimen Set is a leading tool to assess children’s school readiness. Teachers can identify students’ readiness to start Pre-K, Kindergarten, or 1st grade in comparison to national norms. Dr. Chew’s tool has wide recognition throughout North America and Latin America as a major instrument for predicting school readiness. In its 3rd edition, you can purchase the specimen set or individual components.

The Lollipop Test Specimen Set includes 25 Scoring Booklets (one per child), and a teacher’s Developmental and Interpretive Manual, along with a set of colorful Stimulus Cards for administering the test. Administration and scoring must be performed by an educational professional, not a parent. A teacher will hand score the children’s kindergarten test booklet, which offers an easy and practical assessment, taking only 15-20 minutes. The Lollipop Test-III Manual includes published statistical studies and ongoing educational research proving the effectiveness of the test amongst American and other studied student groups.

Everyone loves a lollipop and children will view this school readiness test to be colorful, fun, and non-threatening. The Lollipop Test Specimen Set shows children’s strengths and deficiencies and can identify students who need additional preparation before entering elementary school.

Ensuring your child enters school at the right time plays a significant role in their future educational and professional success. Starting a child too soon or unprepared can have devastating ramifications on their emotional health and self-esteem. They may feel displaced, unable to connect and have low confidence if most other students excel compared to them. The Lollipop Test-III uses data and national norms to ensure your child meets the criteria to begin school.
