Qualls Early Learning Inventory


The Qualls Early Learning Inventory (QELI) is an assessment tool for the use in primary grades to identify student development in six behavioral characteristics related to school learning.  It is a “snapshot” of the child’s skills entering kindergarten and early first grade.  

QELI is administered at the beginning of the school year to all kindergarten students and to any first grade student who did not attend kindergarten.
