In response to the constraints that the COVID-19 pandemic will impose on the upcoming NYC independent school kindergarten admissions process, a group of New York City independent school admission directors enlisted the help of two experts in early childhood development to develop a virtual assessment to serve the needs and interests of Kindergarten applicants, their families, and schools. This virtual assessment, called the Thinking and Engagement Assessment, or T & E Assessment, is a stop-gap solution for the 2020-2021 admission season. This common assessment provides families with the ability to apply to multiple schools but forgoes the burden of multiple virtual assessments.

To learn more about the T & E Assessment, join our webinar featuring Babby Krents, Director of Admissions at the Dalton School, and Winifred Mabley, Director of Lower School Admission, at the Brearley School.

In an effort to answer all your questions about the T & E Assessment, please submit questions here before the start of the event. For more information and to see the list of schools, read our recent blog article: The T&E Assessment: NYC Kindergarten Admissions

She has worked at Brearley for thirty-three years, teaching in the elementary division for the first third of her career and then working in the Office of Admission for the second half. Winifred has been Director of Lower School Admission for the past 15 years, served on the Board of ISAAGNY for six years, and currently sits on the Parents League Advisory Board.

Dr. Elisabeth Krents is the Director of Admissions at the Dalton School, a position she has held for over two decades.

A past board member of ISAAGNY, Babby directed a task force a number of years ago that focused on the validity and reliability of standardized testing for Kindergarten applicants.
