Ignite by Hatch is a comprehensive tool for children, teachers and administrators, designed to prepare children for kindergarten. This tool provides research-based, standards aligned, engaging interactive games, for children 28 months through 5 years old.
Ignite ensures children are ready for kindergarten by building the standards-based-skills they need. The child-facing platform uses interactive, research-based technology games that build skills in social-emotional development, language & communication, physical development, math, science & technology, social studies and phonological awareness & phonics. For example, within the mathematics domain, counting & numeral recognition, Ignite identifies Kindergarten Readiness as the ability to name which number comes before and after a number in a count list. The child’s ability to meet this goal is tracked on an on-going basis, providing the teacher with the information needed to ensure the child meets their readiness goals.

To ensure the games included in Ignite by Hatch are meaningful to teachers, a field test was conducted with 40 teachers and more than 500 children across three programs, and eight sites. An assessment that is valid in content should sufficiently examine all aspects that define the objective. This paper focuses on field test teachers views on the alignment of Ignite game content to developmentally appropriate expectations for children 28 months through 5 years old.
