- Alaska Developmental Profile – Results of Alaska’s Kindergarten entry assessment, the Alaska Developmental Profile (ADP), are reported annually by the Department of Education & Early Development. The ADP is used to provide a snapshot on children’s development in terms of where they are when they enter Kindergarten. It is required as part of the statewide comprehensive system of student assessments, 4 AAC 06.712. It tells us what students know and do, helps inform practice & instruction, and is used to inform statewide policy.
