If you think they are ready, then you should get them tested.

Right, to see if they are ready for kindergarten emotionally and academically or if maybe they should receive additional help in some areas before starting.

Yes, can detect any problems earlier and get help.

I don't think it's right because children excel in different areas. Assessing them at such a young age can be detrimental to their confidence.

I think that if a student is cognitively ready for kindergarten there is no reason to wait for them to start. SImilarly, if a student is not ready there is no reason not to allow them to wait to start school.
