Developmental Profile (DP)
The Alaska Developmental Profile (DP) is used to identify, record and summarize the skills and behaviors students demonstrate at the beginning of their kindergarten year based on teacher observations. The Developmental Profile is not intended to be used for the evaluation of individual students to determine their eligibility for any programs, including kindergarten, or for the evaluation of specific learning programs. The DP is given to kindergarten students in the fall and to first-grade students who were not tested as kindergarteners. For more information, please speak with your child’s kindergarten or first-grade teacher.
