    Abstract: The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS) program, 
conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) within 
the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of 
Education (ED), draws together information from multiple sources to 
provide rich, descriptive data on child development, early learning, 
and school progress. The ECLS program studies deliver national data on 
children's status at birth and at various points thereafter; children's 
transitions to nonparental care, early care and education programs, and 
school; and children's experiences and growth through the elementary 
grades. The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 
2022-23 (ECLS-K:2023) is the fourth cohort in the series of early 
childhood longitudinal studies. The study will advance research in 
child development and early learning by providing a detailed and 
comprehensive source of current information on children's early 
learning and development, transitions into kindergarten and beyond, and 
progress through school. The ECLS-K:2023 will provide data about the 
population of children who will be kindergartners in the 2022-23 school 
year, and will go beyond its predecessor kindergarten cohort studies by 
adding a round of data collection in the spring prior to children's 
kindergarten year, known as the ``preschool round.'' Collecting parent 
data beginning in preschool will enable the study to measure influences 
on children's development before entry into formal schooling, including 
children's home environments and access to early care and education. 
The ECLS-K:2023 will focus on children's early school experiences 
continuing through the fifth grade, and will include collection of data 
from parents, teachers, and school administrators, as well as direct 
child assessments. This request is to conduct a field test of the ECLS-
K:2023 preschool data collection activities from January through 
October 2020, to field test the preschool data collection materials and 
procedures. This ECLS-K:2023 preschool field test will be followed by 
the kindergarten-first grade field test (planned for August-December 
2021), the spring preschool national data collection (January-June 
2022), and the fall (August-December 2022) and spring (March-July 2023) 
kindergarten national data collections--which will be requested under 
separate clearance submissions.
